Slave Cylinder Blues

Postby Hidalgo » Wed Apr 17, 2019 3:34 pm

Hello fellow riders. I have removed the old slave cylinder and the bearings spilled everywhere. I found a slave cylinder for sale brand new at Beemer Boneyard made by a German company but not BMW. They claim to be just as good to identical in quality. Any reason I should not buy it? Does 50% saving could risk a towing incident in the future for this particular issue?

Lastly, for those of you that have changed the slave cylinder: You all know the symptoms. Clutch failing to engage and fluid turning dark immediately. But could the slave cylinder have also caused the rattle noise on the left side of the engine. The noise would go away or diminished when I pressed the clutch. It usually happens most once the bike is warm. I press the clutch and the rattle goes away.
