clutch slave cylinder

Postby thirdstorybase » Wed Jul 10, 2013 7:51 pm



Hello everyone, I have a quick question regarding the clutch slave cylinder on my GL 1200. I have a fluid leak where the hydraulic line meets the clutch slave cylinder, or so I thought... I replaced the line with a braided hose but it is still leaking. I'm getting ready to order a clutch slave cylinder. just wondering if there is a gasket involved or if it bolts right to the engine. I want to make sure I have a gasket if I need it before I take it. apart. does anyone know if there is a gasket or not

You can get s kit that has all the parts to rebuild your slave cyl.I think if you go OEM you have to buy the pieces individually.I got an aftermarket kit from my Honda dealer that they use on they're customer bikes,unless they specifly OEM.Mines been in for approx. 3 years and no problems,
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

If it leaks where the line attaches to the slave and it uses a banjo fitting,there should be a copper colored washer on either side of the banjo.There easily dropped.

the waashers are there. I think that the leak s coming from the slave cylinder itself. just not sure if I need a gasket to install a w one

I don't think there is a gasket on the casting.Just a shaft seal and piston rubber ring.
