    Posted: 19 Jul 2018 at 11:43
As some of you may have noticed, I'm chasing issues with my clutch! It looks like a bit of clutch fluid is getting around the seal on my Factory Racing slave cylinder.  Are these easy enough to service (clean and replace seals) or is it a bite the bullet and buy a new slave cylinder?  I'd rather not drop another £100 on a new cylinder if it can be helped!

Thanks for all the help so far!

They will supply a seal kit to fit yourself.
 
 
I have had the front/main seal fail twice due to the front housing coming loose. So I have little confidence in the product.
 
 
Now have an Oberon unit fitted instead as it mirrors the original design whilst improving the feel.

They are really easy to service,you just need a decent pin spanner and it's a conventional r/h thread should you wonder if it's very tight.

Perhaps a few turns of PTFE tape round the threads when reassembling would be a good idea as the fit on mine wasn't what I'd have hoped for

The replacement seals are better quality and design than the ones that come with them originally

so to make sure I'm diagnosing the fault correctly- if I remove the slave from the body of the bike and pull in the clutch, I should see the piston move but shouldn't see any fluid in the area where the push rod should be?

If you can see any fluid other than in the bar res then you have problems indeed LOL

The Factory/MPL etc slave are a different design to standard,these have the piston fitted from the front behind that nice domed centre cover with the holes in it.

I'll see if I can find the pics I took years ago
