Sorry to hear that bud, I guess I've been lucky in that respect...had 23K miles on my Streetfighter and never an issue with the slave cylinder, none with the Hypermotard and now with over 1600 miles on the Panigale no issues except for a new fuel pump that started to crap out around 400 miles, hope you get it sorted out soon.

That's unusual for a slave on a duc to go bad that quickly. On the six or seven I had with lots of miles only had one seal fail.

Do you see fluid leaking?

Mine boils fluid, the same as the Desmo, but not as badly.

It is usually the rod turning within the slave and heating the fluid.

You can bleed it easily using an 11mm spanner at the top of the master cylinder as the air thankfully rises to exactly that point.

My Pani does it in about 400mls. The desmo runs hot and boils it's clutch slave every 150mls!

Just carry a small 11mm and a tissue with ya!

Maybe that's why I have to bleed the damn thing every 1,000 miles! My buddy had to do the SMS thing on his 1198 SP until he replaced his slave.

Did I just get lucky? You guys have me looking over my shoulder so to speak constantly, waiting to find something gone bad.

So far I've lost two bolts, had the shift rod bolt back out, and a bolt come out with an oil change. No "real" issues as a result.
