this is the slave cylinder that is located on the side of your engine.i've heard lots of people complain about having to bleed their clutch often,but i haven't researched to find out exact cause of this problem.i am having trouble doing a search at the moment.i'm sure you will have lots of repies within a few hours.

I don't know about that companies, but I got the EVO one from AF1 and haven't had to bleed my clutch since.

That will lighten up your lever pull.
I know 3 or 4 guys that have them and are very happy with the results,it does the same as the evo slave cylinder which is what I use.

to the people that have them:

does it help with the clutch bleeding problem?

also how much did you guys pick it up for?

Uli
02-04-2007, 12:25 PM
It helps but it will not eliminate completely the bleeding problem.
I changed to Rock Oil RBF it has a lightly higher viscosity – this helps again the problem also but the effort at the clutch lever is higher – the MPL slave cylinder helps also here.
The sales price is around 180,- (150Euro) but with a little luck you pick it up cheaper @ Ebay.

Paid £75 for mine and yes it does help........i bled my clutch the other day for the first time in 2500 miles and that was because i was doing a service on the bike.......ace bit of kit, i recomend it

The EVO one completely elimated my need to bleed the clutch. I used to have to bleed it every 700 miles or so, and although I only rode it 2500 miles last year, I never bled it once.

2500 Miles is not a problem with the MPL also but I've driven 20000km last year and had to bleed the clutch again.
I Think both are better than the stock one anyway.

Thumbs up for the MPL slave cylinders, they work great. Got 3 of them installed on our bikes.

I changed mine two months ago and all fine with it, still hard to find neutral sometimes, 99 in e-bay.

Yep those rock. It didn't completely cure my bleeding issue, but it made a big change in it and personally I think the clutch feels a lot better too.

Here's some advice; don't start bidding like mad on one of those and drive the price too high. MPL constantly has those in their Ebay store. Just wait on another one.

If you have an Erre or Factory before MY 2006 you have to change the OIl jet - N 10 on the picture (from diameter 60 to 40) so less oil is injected to the clutch and it works much better.

I would be interested to know if the jet is DIY as my bike is a real pig to find neutral.

I'm going to get one of these and was just wondering how easy are they to fit,can I do it myself or will I need to take it to a dealer.

To me it looks as though you have to split the engine open....so not an easy job at all.......:crybaby:

The engine doesn't need to be split open. Its easy to install, only 3 screws and a banjo bolt. The hardest part is getting the system bled.

I've ordered the new jet today.
I asked the dealer and they said it looked to be located behind a bolt just above the slave cylinder. No engine splitting needed just removeing the Slave to gain enough access. They hadn't actually done it themselves so couldn't say how much improvement it makes.

sorry for the mistake,I meant is fitting the actual slave cylinder a hard job.

No very easy to fit. 3 bolts hold it onto the casing and 1 banjo bolt to remove the cable. Then bleed.

One thing i've noticed, during the last 2 clutch bleeds, was when taking off the rubber cap there has always been clutch fluid inside of it and inside the top of the bleed nipple. I hadn't noticed the previous 2 times, just got in there and bled it.

Has anyone suffered with this at all and used this product to alleviate the frequency of bleeding? or does this sound like something else?

Thanks for the info, the bike is actually in the garage, to get MAP2 (after fitting the Akras) and changing to a 15 sprocket, I'll ask to get this done or, at least, ask for the parts.

It's exactly the same for me. Everytime I bleed the thing (once a week) I see oil on niples... Got to be a leak...

Unless the bleed nipple is facing downwards(which they never are)you will always have a few drops left in it after bleeding.

You won't get it out unless you spent time trying to get it out.:)

To all this questions:

To change the clutch slave cylinder it’s easy:


3 bolts hold it onto the casing and 1 banjo bolt to remove the cable. Then bleed.
The “hardest” thing is the bleeding after. There is even no need to remove the fairing.

To change the jet from 60 to 40 it’s easy also – there is a screw above the oilfilter (item 9 in the drawing) – behind this you find the jet just change it – to find neutral gear position is much easier after. The 40 jet is stock from MY 2006 on.

The oily rubber cap – nothing comes out the bleeding nipple – this are really the few drops left, as Mitch has written.

Uli
