    No this works on my computer. Try another method like phone or laptop.

    Do you need to replace the support and pressure plate. Or can I use the old ones?

    That's my question, too, as mine are most unsightly. A heavy bout of wire brushing is in their future but if they need to be replaced then so be it.

    Yes I have a new gasket here. But OP also installed all new support plate and pressure plate, along with new washers and nut. I still have to see what the state of the pressure and support plate is.. But could I re-use them?

    Most likely yes. They're just steel plates and washers after all. We talk about parts #: 24, 25, 27 & 28

    I reused mine. No problem at all. Just give the plates a clean and inspect for any damage prior to assembling it again.

    The old one will do or you can get a new one. The nut does not undergo a lot of stress. I’ve used the old one twice after opening it. Loctite is probably not a good idea.

    I wouldn't be to concerned about using a mild thread lock compound. Like Loctite 243 or something similar. Just for ease of mind?

    Clutch Lever travel limited

    Quote Originally Posted by SoulDaddy View Post

    I had a slow, small oil drip from beneath the clutch slave so I suspected the push rod seal was bad and replaced it. Now the clutch will not disengage and the lever won't travel its normal full distance. During the repair I removed the clutch cover and pressure plate to pull the rod. It looked ok but I used some fine steel wool to dress it up a bit and reinstalled it with a light coat of silicone grease. The pressure plate, diaphragm and clutch cover went back in well enough as did the slave but obviously something on one end or the other of that rod isn't happy.

    I'll open it all back up but thought I'd also check with the think tank to see what y'all had to say. Not the merriest Christmas Eve I can think of but if I can get a ride in tomorrow morning that'll be just fine.

    Did you discover the source of the limited clutch lever travel? My 2001 Mille just started doing this. I talked to a guy a couple years back who was having this issue. He never figured it out. Sold his bike out of frustration. I have no oil seepage issues. Just limited travel. I suspect something is worn as it seemed to develop over a period of time.
