    Slave cylinder gone on my RSVR, help needed please!

    Hey all,

    About a week ago, my rsvr clutch went, and ive now bled the clutch through, still to no avail.

    Im pretty sure it's the slave cylinder so need to purchase a new one, but here's the question:

    Has anyone else had this problem? What after market replacement did you get?



    I've seen them on E-bay for about 90 but dont know if these are any good.


    Any help appreciated

    Common problem. You can replace the seals but they are not cheap.

    Get an Oberon. Makes clutch a lot easier to use especially around town - easy to fit - UK made - lifetime warranty - top quality kit.

    Speak to Tash on here. He'll do you a good deal.

    In the UK there are only really the MPL and Oberon ones available. I don't think there is a distributor for the Evoluzione ones over here. Both are about the same price. I've never heard of any issues with the Oberon but there are a few posts about seal failure issues with the MPL.

    PM Tash for a price on them.

    Got mine for about 55 delivered, just depends how many people bid on them, guess i was lucky hardly any bids on the one i got a while ago, does make clutch lighter and easier, but not night and day sort of difference, no probs with mine, done over 7000 miles with it so far, although i do like using me quickshifter.

    mine made a big big difference in comparison to stock for me.. although it might be because i have the worlds smallest hands and not that much grip strength that it made such a big impact.. went from struggling with the clutch and getting constant hand and wrist cramp, to complete and utter comfort and ease lol

    I presume you bled the master cylinder at the lever...that was my problem. Even so, I still fitted an Oberon slave as the original one isn't very smooth, and is also quite heavy.

    I bought an MPl after the seals on my OE one took a dump.
    IIRC about a 85 squids.
    Great mod, the clutch action seems lighter and a little smoother too...athough I didn't measure the lever pull before I fitted the MPL....so theoretically, it could just be the voodoo effect and all be in my head..

    Yes, I believe needing to bleed the master cylinder is also a common problem. It's an easy job to do as it has its own bleed nipple.
