Slave Cylinder:
Consider rebuilding whilst it is apart. If corroded replace it:

https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000a...tall-help.html
https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...tch-fluid.html

NOTE: Google is your friend. I found all those links by simply searching for Stromtrooper, clutch slave cylinder. Faster than waiting for someone to do it for you.

You need a new gasket for the engine case. Not sure about any grease to use on it. Again, you need the service manual.

I apologize , was a post out of desperation from me after realizing I bled out the clutch fluid.

It was nice of you to get the links for me, I did not mean to make you do the googling for me but your links helped, thank you.

I was able to put everything back and rebuild the clutch system using a YouTube video, posting link here :
https://youtu.be/zPXqwAGmX04

The clutch works , I had to pump until liquid started bleeding out of the nipple. I am able to change gears. Although, when I engage clutch the slave cylinder assembly seems to move a little bit, will look into that more to see if any leaks.

And , after jbwelding the magnets I had 14v at the battery at idle last night when I fired it up for a bit, which is more than anything I have had before. Will check for longer time and at higher RPMs today.

Good news. Add a cheapy V meter to your setup to be able to monitor the voltage real time. That way you wont get stranded in case something goes wrong with your stator. Don't mess with the R/R, seems to be of no real benefit to others.

At least you caught it before it damaged the magnets or other parts. And hopefully before it left you stranded!

Fantastic forum, guys. More than anybody would ever want to know about Wee's, and Vee's, and Glee's, and Birdee's.

It seems like that orange adhesive used to hold the rotor magnets in place has a pretty tough job. Heat turns most adhesives to jello (even the really good stuff). Plus vibration and thermal expansion of two very different materials, all in a frothy bath of motor oil... I'm surprised the magnets stay put at all.

$300 for a new rotor is a bit much to swallow, and it sucks that the fix only works for newer bikes, but slowly sending pulverized J-B weld through the engine seems...

Reporting back on my repairs, I put a voltmeter/usb charger on my handlebar . Did a more than 2 hour ride today (rode with the wife first time and she seemed to enjoy it!) and the bike started fine each time. I have not used the trickle charger since I opened by stator cover 3 weeks ago so the battery seems to be charging.

Saw around 14.5V +- 0.2V while riding, this is the same my multimeter showed me when I revved up the rpm in the garage.

Is close 14.7 too much V? I have put back the OEM R/R . The one I had on when I opened up the stator cover and put it back was $20 one from eBay but it did keep the volts to 14.1 even at 5k RPM.

Thanks for all the help guys. Will post if I have any updates.
