Clutch or slave cylinder???
Hey gang - here are the details and symptoms:
If the bike is NOT running, in gear, clutch lever fully depressed: bike will not roll
If the bike is NOT running and I start it in first gear with the clutch lever fully depressed: bike lurches forward 2"-3"
If the bike is RUNNING and I drop it into first gear with the clutch lever fully depressed: there is a noticeable cla-clunk sound and the bike tries to move forward for a split second
A new clutch kit is relatively inexpensive from Suzuki, and I am not afraid to tackle the job, but I am looking for some input first - I have had my slave cylinder replaced once already due to a leak. Is it at all feasible that the symptoms indicated above are slave cylinder related?
Any input is appreciated - thanks all,
Today is the only day that truly matters. Here's hoping that yours is beautiful.
