I'd clean the slave while you have it in hand and replace the rubber (o-rings) if they are in need of changing and I'd bet they are.

Probably not. Call your local dealer.

You want #s 9, 14 & 15. Maybe #11 too, but inspect it first.

Check the entire line for leaks as well.

lucky for me I have 2 clutch slaves.
I am hating the cruise control crap, making it hard to get to everything around the radiator area. Just removing it all, not like I will need it. Control look like crap and buttons cracked, probably doesn't work so I am just going to pitch it unless somebody wants it.
Did start pulling the stuff apart to get engine out but can I get the clutch slave on and off with engine in bike? I want to put engine back in as soon as I get the rest of the parts on it, don't want to wait on slave parts to install if I can help it

Yes, but many here have been unable to replace the seal in the clutch case with the motor in. So I really advise you do that with the motor out.

Look for lose/worn linkage on the carburetors.

I believe many those after market cruise controls have caused slack in the linkage resulting in carbs that go out of sync when you turn the throttle.

The low speed hesitation has had many a man cleaning and recleaning the carbs when the problem was the after market cruise control had for many years pulled the linkage from the left side instead of using the place the throttle cables do. Any twisting of the throttle done by the operator while using the cruise or not causes undue wear on the linkage that is unobtainium.

Just something to keep in mind along the way.

I found play between the right and left banks on the bike that had the added cruise and low speed hesitation.

That's pretty common. You could drill the head off the screw. Make sure you leave enough of the shank to get some pliers on it.

Also, I wonder if you could fill the screw head with JB Weld and then cut a slot on that.
