    I replaced my sprockets and chain and I’m trying to put it all back together but there’s a rod that goes into the clutch slave cylinder that seems to be sticking out too far and I can’t push it in to put the bolts back in?! The instructions on here said to pull in the clutch lever and tie it so no air gets in the system. How can I get that rod to push farther in or push in the opening in the clutch cylinder itself so I can put it back together?! Help!!

    I got it. You have to push the big cylinder in, not the chrome rod. None of that was covered in the “how to”. Esh!! That was scary!

    As you found out when the clutch slave is unbolted do not pull the lever!

    Do clamp the removed slave so that it does not push the piston out of the housing (it will want to do this just from the gravity of the fluid pushing on the piston).

    Did you loose any fluid out of the slave by pulling the lever and holding it there?

    Luckily I didn’t loose any Fluid or get any air into the system. Everything is working properly same as before. The new EK SRX2 xring chain does seem to get loose then tight when turning. More prominent seemingly than the old chain but still within spec according to the shop manual. The sprockets runs true So it must be the chain. Is this normal?

    I’m not sure where SuperSprox are made but everyone seems to say there a quality brand so that’s what I chose. I probably won’t change them out again for a long time (I’m not a daily rider and don’t go on trips) so I spent the money. There’s no “cheap china crap” on anything that I use that could kill me if it breaks due to faulty craftsmanship. Made in China doesn’t by itself mean it’s bad quality though. My iPhone X for example.
