I've used the search, but i was unable to find detailed info about the actual seal that is needed to repair the clutch slave.

Cashing out for the oberon one at full price is a bit steep for me, but I do want to stop the slave from weeping fluid out. The clutch actuates properly for the moment, but the fluid level goes down in the master cylinder reservoir and I like to have my things in order

unless someone is parting with a billet one for a friendly price ;)

What about the one in the "For Sale" section, send the guy a PM instead of just posting on the forum.
Too much work for you :thewife::stickpoke

Can a dealer not order you the seal(s) by itself?



As far as details about the slave set up that would be found in a shop engine manual. Can't believe i'm doing this since it took all of 2 second to find links to manuals online which anyone with the will to know would have been able to find rather easily. But anyway, below is all the work done for you......

any f4 engine manual should have it on page 54 of the clutch section. There is one seal that keeps the hydro fluid in the slave and another that seals off the clutch rod and engine oil from the slave itself.

Or if that doesn't work then try the main page.....

No, MV does not sell the slave cylinder seals separate , the push rod seal is a different story though.

All the manuals and links to them are right here on the forum http://www.teamdouble3racing.com/manuals.php

I know what you meant! And thanks for the compliment :stickpoke
Aha, I must have missed something in the translation.

In the meantime, has anybody ordered one of these seal kits and successfully repaired a slave cylinder?

Will call dealer tomorrow and find out. Can't see why they wouldn't be able to sell those seals. Plus i'll go measure up a 1krr clutch slave and the Agusta one to see if they are interchangeable.

varium;
the slave is probably made by Brembo........they are famous for not selling service parts for their crap, they make you buy the whole thing new

BMW and KTM sell caliper seals for Brembos......I don't know about M/C seals but Aprilia sells Brembo slave seals ....for $26......I get them from the rebuilder for $6

the slave seal is a 1 3/16" car M/C seal measure it, it comes on GM and Toyota cars :naughty:

if you have a CNC Brembo racing caliper (old price) $1682 and need a new dust boot.......its $1682.......quote Fred Renz (Yoyodyne) the Brembo distributor


assholes :wtf::wtf::wtf::wtf::wtf:

Hi

The clutch slave on my 1000S began leaking a few months ago.

Thinking the seal would be an easy find/replace I took it to a local specialist. They didn't have and had never seen that size and type of seal.

The original seal was showing very little wear but the bore was marked by rubber or oil. A light hone cleaned the bore and it is holding fluid 2000km later.

I'd be really interested to know the exact Toyota or GM application for the seal as replacement seems a safer option.

Thanks.

So are you saying the slave seal on the Agusta is a known exact match for a m/c seal from a GM and Yota? Not just the od but the id and thickness are the same? Happen to have a part number or vehicle model to help folks narrow it down?

That could be an option for the OP to look into. He did say he had trouble removing/installing the slave. Could have gotten some crud in there and all it needs is a good disassembly and cleaning. However, one would need to be super careful not to ruin a seal for sure when trying to remove/clean/replace it. Then they'd have to buy a new one for sure.

seeing my post in the thread, i already did that. sadly, it has been sold already a long time ago but no update in the thread.

i already bought a new one, rather spend the mone than have a failed clutch.

Looks like the issue is being resolved but here is what i found out by comparing the 1krr and MV clutch slave. Honda is much larger and not even a close fit. However, they do share the same size rod diameter of 8mm.

If need be i could mic out the size of the clutch rod seal, or outer clutch slave seal, whichever one cares to call it, should anyone care to find a substitute/replacement.
