Push the slave cylinder piston back into the cylinder then reinstall. Ensure that the stack height is correct.
Actually now that I think about it you can push the rod in from the clutch side if you still have it apart. just push hard against it and it will compress the piston into the slave cylinder. When you get everything back together just grab the clutch lever repeatedly until it pumps back up and re-sets itself. if the oil in your reservoir is dark and dirty go ahead and bleed the system.thanks, will try tonight. once i remove the slave, do i need to bleed, will the system be compromised? never have taken one off before...
