  • cylinder clutch release leaks

    what's up Fam. I have a 2000 TLR it runs great. I have a leak in my clutch cylinder. Has anyone ever replaced one ? I had a seal replaced but the cylinder is shot so I'm going to attempt to change it myself. would like to know if its going to be difficult once I pop it out?

    Do you mean the main cylinder or the slave fitted to the case If it's the slave cylinder they're a piece of cake to replace (or just the seal in the piston).

    Either way, be prepared to spend a LOT of time bleeding the system by whichever way/method you choose
    People I will not deal with: tl1000swill or tlrwill or crazywheelie or whatever it decides to call himself.

      thanks fam it's the slave it looks like it may be a pc of cake but i never done it befor i ordered the part in 2 weeks I still roll has a very small leak not much refilling of the clutch fluid every 4-5 days top off. when I open the slave should i be expecting things to pop out? are they all on one unit? just trying to get a picture of what to expect.

        I replied to this on the zone for you, nothing will pop out unless you pump the piston too far.

          At the top of the page click on <TL Resources> <File Downloads>. Right click and save the TL1000R service manual. Now you'll have the complete how to with pictures. That should also keep you from having to come back to ask where the spacer that fell out goes.

          And before you come back to ask once the new one is on, bleed the system four or five more times and you'll probably be okay. Yep, really...

          "The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."
