Banjo Bolt area.
« on: April 30, 2018, 03:10:53 pm »
On the left side of the bike just above the shift lever, their is a banjo bolt.  That bolt is attached to some sort of cover.  What is that because mine leaks from there.  Is it the clutch?

Remove bolt, install 2 new washers, reinstall, fill and flush clutch hydraulics, (clean up mess).
While your at it, I would remove the slave cylinder and clean the ID of it.

First I would wipe everything with a rag and brake cleaner, and stick a wrench on that bolt, and snug it... don't be a monster, just make sure its tight......
Then, if it stops leaking its fixed... and was easy...  :great:
Pulling everything off and cleaning and replacing seals, and such may not be needed...
If it isn't fixed, well, its a pull it off and rebuild while its off, just because your gonna have to bleed the sytem at that point anyways.. that the p.I.t.a. part..., even tho you are just needing copper washers replaced.

Lots of people turn a 20 second job, into a costly 4 hour pain, by getting the cart before the horse..

Good point. Try tightening first.
I assumed you had already done that?
