Engines back in frame, there is now a problem with the clutch being stiff to pull, the slave cylinder is pushing the casing as the push rod for the clutch is'nt out far enough??



Is it maybe there is aball bearing missing or does it rely on engine oil pressure to operate??



(no oil in as yet)



Any suggestions.



???

There's no interface with the engine oil pressure, HOWEVER, if your engine is dry and the clutch is also dry, thre could be a lot of fricetino there that you wouldn't have in other situations.

To eliminate the possibility of kinked hoses in the clutch hydraulics (engine-out operations expose the clutch hoses to trauma, twisting and pinching), open the bleeder on the slave and see if things move more freely... If you find that the feel does not soften markedly, then you've likely got a damaged line - not much there, but you'll wanna look at & touch the whole length of it.

If the bleeder open DOES help, then you're looking at mechanical binding, and it may be a good thing to pull the slave to see what's hitting what.

If nothing else can be found... get the case wet and spinning (even if it's just "you turing the rear wheel" as you try the clutch a few times to see if there's binding in the clutch basket (from centering issues or just being fully dry or possibly oxidized)...

One time a dummy was working on my clutch master cylinder.......and got that clutch rod in backwards. Man it was hard to pull in that clutch lever.

Sorry guys, its a Gl1500. The lever does not move at all, its solid. The slave is working and it appears to be pressing against the casing, not operating the rod

Parked it in heavy rain, got water in cylinder and hydrolocked. Stripped the teeth on starter idler and drive. Chipped tooth on primary driven gear

Yes, the clutch seemed to work with he rod in backwards. I could definately tell something was wrong though. Didn`t take long to figure out what I had done.
Something to check out if you were working in that area.

Gonna have to take it loose again, maybe the clip that fits on the push rod.Don't know what they call it. The lever doesn't move at all. Things were going well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is the fluid line trapped or pinched? When you open the bleed nipple on the slave and squeeze the lever does it squeeze all the way in?
