So as title, new levers on, test ride and noticed slight clutch slip? Is it due my my adjustment or not.... Of the length of the pin that pushes into the rubber hole beneath the lever. I did measure it but maybe got it wrong!

Thanks.

Yes. You'll need to back it out a bit. If it doesn't allow the piston to move back far enough the freeing port back to the reservoir remains covered by the piston so the system remains pressurised. As the whole shebang warms up it will result in the actuating rod and thrust mechanism being pre-loaded and the clutch will slip. It's not good for the thrust bearing either.

Back it off a little at a time until it stops doing it.

Cheers Pete, appreciate the quick response. Just to be clear, I am unscrewing it to make sure it pushes further into towards the freeing port.

Sorry, I tend to always go the wrong way in translation! Shocked

Other way, I think if I am reading this correctly.

Yes, back it out, away from the master cylinder itself so you effectively shorten it.

Rod reset inwards, lever refitted and just test rode the bike. All good now, happy with clutch bite and no more slip.

Thanks to Pete and Little750 for the responses and help. cheers
