    Put one on a couple months ago, great feel and looks very durable. Only thing was I had to grind a little off the shift lever as the lever hit the slave cylinder when trying to upshift.

    I just ordered one complet kit, and i have a question. The original magura was mounted with a paper seal.

    The Sigutech came with a paper seal + an O-Ring. The flange is approx 4mm longer on the sigutech, so it could be possible that they planned to put the paper seal + the O-Ring, but to me it's a bit strange and I don't have any information

    What do you think about that?

    Do you mean just the rubber cap, or metal parts as well?

    Goodridge and others do rubber caps. You can find them on eBay. Search for 'brake nipple cap'

    Or buy at: http://www.spiliotis.gr/

    Hello G,
    for the 640 slave there is only the paper gasket.
    O-ring only for LC8 slave or for 690 slave (paper gasket + o-ring)

    I have great luck with my Sigutech clutch slave cylinder. I had to grind a little off my lever.

    I wish I had seen this before I put mine on this weekend. Looks like I will be doing some filing. Quite a challenging ride to work today with the shifter sticking up. :eek1

    I got mine used from another inmate so no instructions. Did you guys move the ball bearing over to the new slave? I didn't and now it seems like the lever isn't working until part way thru the stroke. I guess I should put the ball in there.

    I just got home and was able to compare the 2 slaves. Looks like the same. I must have a wee bit of air in my lines. A fresh bleed is in order.
    I filed off the shifter some as well as the edge on the slave.
