    Im fitting an STM aftermarket clutch slave cylinder to the streetfighter 848 and ive got a bit of a question about the clutch slave pushrod.

    The standard slave has a anti rotational pin and plastic washer to obviously stop it rotating, however the after market one does not allow for that.

    The workshop manual also states "Proceed as follows in case the anti-rotation pin (30) has been removed from the clutch pushrod (27)." (see below)

    Can anyone tell me what impact if any the rotation will have on the clutch slave pushrod? This one is way out of my league...

    Well the pushrod can get caught up with the pressure plate bearing, the anti-rotation pin probably stops it ripping into the seals on the slave cylinder.

    Then again I believe the dry clutch Ducatis don't have them and they don't seem to terminally destroy slave cylinder seals instantly.

    Thanks Supa...

    Its a 30mm STM aftermarket one, but ive read really good things about the 29mm Oberon one.

    Not even sure how to remove the anti rotational pin, so i might just stick with the standard one hahaha.

    I have a Oberon clutch slave cylinder on my M600 and it works well. Feels a lot better than the standard one. The bigger the slave diameter makes the clutch easier to engage but the less clutch feel you will have through the lever.

    That pin probably just taps out.
