Oberon Slave Cylinder - Question Post Install

Hey guys,

I noticed something strange after the install of my Oberon Slave Cylinder. I noticed that now, with the bike turned off, if I put the bike in neutral out of 1st gear to roll it around, it will drop out of neutral and stop the bike within a few feet of pushing the bike. To get around it, I pull the lever into 2nd gear and then drop it back into neutral and then no problem rolling it around.

The slave cylinder was bled properly and installed properly so I'm not sure why this started happening. Also want to hold out the possibility that it has nothing to do with the slave cylinder at all.

I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

Shifting gears around when a bike isn't running doesn't always end up with a fully engaged target gear.

Are you describing bikes in general or just MV? Neutral is almost always positively engaged in all of my bikes regardless of shifting into it from 1st or 2nd -- including my F4 up until now.

This is something entirely new that just recently developed post install. I'm wondering if I should uninstall/reinstall the CSC for kicks in giggles.

Has NOTHING to do with your clutch......

Does it drop back into first? or up into 2nd? Regardless, it has to do with your shift drum and the neutral detent....and your shifting. Not the clutch.

Thumbs up ?

Bet it's your aftermarket shift linkage.......
Try removing the Sato link arm and put a stock lever on it and push it around the shop

I think you might be right Noel. I did notice during install that the linkage rested flush against the slave cylinder body a little bit tighter than stock.

It might be a matter of unbolting it and filing down a portion of the linkage to create more clearance.

Thanks everyone for your input. I'm going to ride with it and see how it goes and will revisit this when I have some downtime to play around with it.

The linkage should not be near the slave cylinder.
Before you start filing,is it in the right position.
I have Sato rearsets and the linkage arm is nowhere near the slave cylinder.

Not the linkage. Sorry, bad choice of words. Rather it's the Rearset elbow that allows for the reverse shift pattern. This is the piece that uses the same bolts as the slave cylinder.
