    Have a "pdf" of the original page where the photos would be contextualized. Just can't put it here.
    If there's way, let me know.

    Was able to look at the intake valves as well.

    When you replaced the last one did you replace the line as well?

    Yes I did Jim. I also made sure to pack the unit full of grease prior to install.

    You may have a bad master then. Something is contaminating your slave. Try flushing the master with a pint of fluid before changing the slave again.

    Such a great pity that all those fotos taken by acupuncture disappeared into nowhere years ago. In this era of unlimited storage-capacity servers, these various picture-hosting firms have a lot to answer for....
    One question, six years after the start of this amazing thread :-
    ¿ Might it be possible to remove the crossbar that obstructs access to the slave cylinder after removal of the rear wheel, silencer ( muffler ) and shock ?

    [​IMG]

    The crossbar in the foto seems to be held in place on the gearshift pedal side by the bolt holding the pedal assy in place, and on the opposite brake pedal side by two additional hexes facing forwards in addition to the brake pedal assy attachment bolt.
    Surely if that lot is undone, the bar will withdraw or drop ? I notice it has flats machined into the bar at the left-hand side to facilitate holding it still with an open-end wrench to ease disassembly.
    ¿ Steptoe ?

    The bar withdraws from the right side, so you have to lift the subframe a bit to allow that. That's not hard, but it's a fair amount of work.

    As I remember, you can get the cylinder out without removing the gearbox bar, use an L shaped allen key to get the 3 bolts out and the pump should come out under the bar.
    So you just need to remove the rear shock.

    that is how I did it. you'll need some patience as one of the three bolts is a pita to get out.

    Thanks to Anton, Dan and Loutre.
    Incidentally....
    As the seats are off, ready for this awkward-access job, ¿ maybe undoing the three air-box fixing bolts - one at the back top edge and the two pesky hard-to-get-at ones each side above the motor's barrels - maybe also meaning you have to undo the crankcase fumes vent hose - in order to lift up the air-box a little, would give a bit more clearance on top of the slave ?

    Also, I got told a gem of a tip by Steptoe from his garden shed workshop in south-west London, regarding the awkwardness of getting the slave cylinder out into a more accessible position ready to undo the 2 banjo bolts on top of it.

    He says : - Undo the top nut on the left hand fork.
    ( Remember there are no springs in a Telelever fork tube )
    Slide the tube down a bit so you can pass the clutch's braided hydraulic fluid line INBOARD of the fork tube, towards the frame.

    This then will give you enough slack in the previously-tight fluid line, to make fiddling with the cylinder down below a whole lot easier.

    What a great tip ! Many thanks Steptoe ! ( Neil Harrison, www.gsshop.biz )

    AL in s.e. Spain - now with my newly imported UK Rockster all set for registering into the Spanish number plate system.
