Liquid cooled vs Air Cooled Clutch Slave Cylinder
Hi all , I have a Monster1200R that suffers from the same problems as my previous bike (1098) in the clutch slave cylinder dept. The clutch gets progressively softer until you can't find neutral or shift from neutral to first. It requires bleeding yearly and sometimes more often. Its easy enough to do and I know that an aftermarket cylinder would solve the problem.
My 1100s Hyper (which appears to have the same slave cylinder) never has this problem. I only bleed it when doing maintenance. IIRC It has only been done once in the last few years and that was just to refresh the fluid. Performance was fine.
What gives ?
