I'm rebuilding the clutch slave and wondered if anyone has flushed the reservoir and hose down to the end of the banjo (but not into the slave unit itself )with seafoam or any other cleaner ?????

:?

I wouldn't do that. leave any Seafoam in the lines at all and it could leave you with no clutch while riding. Flush with fresh clutch/brake fluid only.

Thanks , I wasn't sure if SF would hurt.... I thought maybe it would clean out the lever plunger (I guess thats what you would call it )....I guess there wouldn't be any gunk buildup in the hose or banjo so i'll just flush with brake fluid.

the banjo bolts are clean also. slave unit wasn't that dirty, but some gunk was stuck to the sides of the slave...all clean now tho......THANKS



any other ideas or tips are appreciated !!!

Doc
Pull it totally apart to clean it, if the reservoir is cruddy, so is the piston and seal/bore. That is the only way to ensure that is done right or you may be doing it all over again. Do it right the first time. Same with calipers and the slave unit. Some try and do it fast and DIRTY, and some do get away with it(it's what people who don't care enough about others do).
Remember bro, Do all things as unto the LORD

This may be a little different but I had my system in bits for the brakes. I used canned air like the sort they sell in computer shops to blast little bits of grit out of the banjos and reservoir.

wouldn't apply this to hoses, but to clean the reservoir both brake and clutch I have used brake disc cleaner in a spray can.

using a straw the small hole can be cleaned, and it cleans the viewer too. drys fast, and leaves no residue.

Keep it away from the rubber seals if you plan to reuse them!
