Part #23166-02F20

It's 27A in the diagram: https://www.partsfish.com/oemparts/a...0722f94/clutch

It'll run you a little better than $9USD.

Or any Suzuki dealer can get it for you. There must be one in Stockholm.

Clutch and brake bleeders are the same.

That's not the dust cover he means. He wants the dust cover that sits between the piston and the pushrod, and prevents dirt from inside the front sprocket housing to reach the slave cylinder.

The very first generation of DL1000s did not have this dust cover so it's perfectly possible to ride the bike without. And the system is self-adjusting anyway so you don't need to compensate for the reduced length of the pushrod system if you go without one. But it's an extremely good idea to use this cover - and even retrofit it if you've got a bike that came without one - in order to prolong slave cylinder life.

Have you considered taking the damaged cover to an automotive clutch & brake store, so they can try match it up with something similar they may have in stock?

It's easy enough to buy from Suzuki. He probably already has one on order.

Earlier models didn't have them at all. They were instituted on later models because of early slave cylinder failure as a result of chain debris fling onto the push rod and slave cylinder piston and migrating into the cylinder seal. Suzuki hasn't said this, but action speaks louder than words. This design was for a TL never meant to see rain or dirt.

My experience shows that the "dust cover" doesn't solve the problem entirely on the DL which often sees inclement weather and off-road abuse. Over all it's just a bad design for a "dual purpose" bike. Crap still finds its way in there and chews up the seal. I've posted elsewhere about this.

Fully agree. "Clean behind the sprocket cover" should be on the list for every service. It's amazing to see the amount of crap that collects there.

People have experimented with putting some tubing around the pushrod but I have not seen a real adequate solution yet. It would be great if Suzuki would come up with a combination of slave cylinder seal and oil seal, joined by some sort of concertina tube. That would be the only real way to prevent problems in this area, short of redesigning the whole clutch so the pushrod doesn't run through an exposed area.
