My Suzuki GSXR1000 got knocked over by a neighbor in my parking lot a week ago, and it broke the clutch master cylinder assembly. (and leaked brake fluid all over the side of my bike. :( )
I ordered a new assembly, but it comes 'dry' and the instructions say to take apart the internals and soak it in brake fluid before putting it back together and installing the clutch assembly and then bleeding it.
Not wanting to screw up the new 200$ part, I took apart the old clutch assembly to see how to put it back together, and I _cannot_ for the
life of me get the internal snapring back in. There's some expensive Suzuki tool, I'm sure...
So the question is - HOW critical is it to take that apart and soak the internals? Couldnt I get similar results just pouring brake fluid
thru the system and pumping it lots? (I know, dont make the obvious rude comment here!)
what i'm talking about are parts labeled: 2, 3, 4 and 5 that go INSIDE part 1...
