Did you have an engine oil leak associated with that cylinder failure? Or did the slave cylinder rot away causing a hydraulic (clutch) pressure loss/failure?
The mechanic at the dealer (who seems quite experienced) thinks there's oil leaking from around the clutch pushrod that goes through the engine. From there it's running down the side of the engine all over the casting that covers the gear selector assembly.
Anyhow it's still under warranty so they are going to order up all the seals, o-rinigs and gaskets that live around that part of the motor, so once they take it apart, they can replace them all.
I hope the Highlands warming up to some fine Spring riding.
