000 miles on it now and I started losing clutch fluid recently. I'm not sure what I want to do to fix the problem. I see that AF1 has oem replacement slaves cylinder seals and the evoluzione slave. Anyone have the evoluzione slave? Worth the money or just replace the stock cylinder or seals? I had Evo slaves on both my Tuono and Falco. Better design than OEM. Bleed it once and the fluid will last a while. has 3 orings. OEM has one and the fluid goes black in about 5 minutes............ If money is tight, the rebuild is the way to go. The Evo is more than just bling though, it is a better design.,5'8 but left leg is 3 shorter than it used to be so thinking of lowering the bike to ease getting on and of it. I had realised that I would have to lower the front as well but was mainly wondering about the geometry on the back end and if it would still work correctly with the different linkages. ,It will still work, just not as well as with the right linkage. The spring rate will no doubt be wrong. Nothing major to worry about though imo... Not sure what others may think. 3 shorter, hows that if you dont mind my asking? Im only 5'6 tall, cant have both feet down flat but I have no major issues. ,

Although I can change between 3,4,5 and 6th gear I cannot get first or second especially down shifting

It sounds like the clutch.May be dragging.does it creep forward if the in at a standstill in gear.and can you get 1st and 2nd and neutral if the bike is not running and you rock it back and forth to move the shafts around.

1993 honda shadow 1100 leaking engine oil from slave cylinder

Small O-ring, if that is engine oil, if it is brake fluid oil, you have bad slave cyl. gasket.
The O-ring is difficult to change, the clutch shaft is going through it from slave cyl. to clutch. You can try change it from left side, but I think easier from right, but you have to take off right engine cover and complete clutch, then slave cyl., pushing it out from left to right site thru a rod hole.

Clutch feels fine on lever, was ok before i changed front sproket, have bled, but can not push bike when its in gear and lever pulled in,fzr1000 exup 89.

When you put the sprocket cover back on, you've not engaged the clutch push rod correctly in the clutch slave cylinder. As the cover was tightened down it's pushed the slave cylinder piston too far back.
Remove the slave cylinder only (3 x 8mm head bolts) and check it operates properly, then ensure the push rod is correctly seated in the depression in the centre of the slave cylinder plate when you bolt it back up. FJ1200's have the same clutch and I had the same problem with my FJ...

Signs of a leaking clutch slave?

A leaky slave would be more likely to give a soft lever. What you're describing sound more like a problem with the return bleed in the master. Have you made any adjustments recently?

Not getting along with my new falco

but im not really feeling the love for it. the main problems i have at the moment are that the front and rear suspension are really soft its ruining my cornering confidence and making the bike uncomfortable to ride. im 20st and 6'5 so there is a lot of me to hustle about. the hagon shock that the previous owner put on there has not adjustment other then preload and im sure the spring rate is miles off what i would need whats a good replacement shock for a guy like me? also the clutch is very heavy with little progression its either on or off so im finding riding in town hard work as well as slipping the clutch in corners. lastly the fuel economy is pretty poor, i only got 93 miles before my low fuel warning light came on. so any suggestions? because at this rate im considering selling it to get something a bit more pedestrian for riding in london like a fazer 1000.,I wasn't feeling the love for my falco for awhile either. For reference, I'm 6'6 and about 250 lbs. Helibars are a must IMO. Also, my level of hate went waaaay down when I installed a smaller (-1) front sprocket. Being able to get the bike into corners at the right revs (and torque) reduced the amount of braking I did, which let the suspension settle down. Toss the stock shock. They're great bikes, you just have to get it set up for you. ,,,

Rattly clutch? SL MILLE R

The clutch in my secondhand engine does exactly the same it's not too bad when the engine is cold but has a tendency to drag a little till it warms up. When hot there is quite a racket until I pull the lever. This engine came out of a written off RSV trackday bike and has had a much harder life than my original one. I reckon that it's time for both of us to rebuild our clutches no doubt someone on here can confirm my suspicion.,,,
