    RSV Clutch Bite Points??

    OK, went down to Hastings/Bexhill today with Flick and noticed that when I was round town the clutch bite point got further and further away from the bar.

    In addition to this it became very snatchy when trying to pull away smoothly.

    I fitted my new slave cylinder last week and thought that may have helped but it appears to be a little more in depth than that.

    I think it may be the clutch plates buggered, looks like it may be the OE clutch still in place, so with 11K on the clock I think we can say it's had a good life.

    Any comments are welcome, well constructive comments are anyhow!!

    Give the clutch another bleed through Amb just to eliminate the fact that there may still be air in the clutch line. There is a correct procedure in bleeding the clutch as air can easily be trapped behind the piston in the slave especially as a new one has just been fitted. It needs to be turned the correct way to eliminate the air.

    I agree with legs! I would hope to get more than 11K out of a clutch. Although if your bike is one of the more powerful faster 03 silver ones then you may be right.

    But back to the point a mastercylinder or slave replacement can be termperamental and needs bench bled well.
