    Hi does anyone know the correct length of the clutch push rod (60032054400) ?
    My clutch wont disengage proberly, i cant find anything wrong anywere(slave,booster,
    disks etc) but the rod seems to have taken some beating in the clutch slave end that might have shortened it. Thanks!

    I suggest you try installing a spacer and see what happens.
    Cheers.

    You will have to unbolt the slave cylinder on the left side of the bike and install a washer in the end of the pushrod. However the liquid clutch assembly is there to compensate small changes by usint supplementary hydraulic liquid from the liquid tank. Are you sure you are not experiencing clutch slave cylinder failure?

    A small air bubble in the line will cause this...

    I have changed the slave, and i think i have all the air out of the system. It is not to expensive to change the rod (23 euro). It is kind of battled and worn on the slave (thin) side. Since i think it might affect its performance i will probebly just change it... Cheers!
