Slave cylinder


Recommended Posts

Ahoy!

So.....

I have an extensive collection of slave cylinders. They all fucking leak, changed seals etc. The pistons are in a pretty crappy state. Is there any other bikes you can steal them off?

This is why i change to cable clutch on oil cooled engines, not only better feel from a  cable, but much cheaper and simpler to fix, and less likely to go worng.:tu

I've thought about it in the past but I like the hydraulic clutch.

Last one I did I just got a new seal, put the piston on the spinny wire wheel then slightly honed the slave bore. Works like new now. 

Thats what happened to the last one but there was pitting on the piston under the seal. Lasted a few months but leaked again while stood up over winter.

Found a nearly new one on Eblag from Lithuania. Will turn up one day. I've had another one powder coated so will Rob the piston out of the new one. 

Hoping that sorts it!

Could a stainless piston be made in the same manner as replica brake caliper pistons?

A mate has offered to make me a stainless one. He's very handy on a lathe. I will take him up on it but it'll be ages until it happens. 

That dust seal would be handy!

Heard it off a man who is on the bandit owners forum.
