Hi, im currently in sidi ifni marocco 2300 miles into my trip from london to capetown and my clutch slave has gone leaving me stranded. luckily with some help ive been able to get hold of the clutch slave but cant seem to get mineral oil for the resevoir anywhere! Does anyone have any ideas or solutions...

If no joy with mineral oil try cooking oil, olive oil or ATF.
Have used cooking oil before for quite a while when I was stuck.
Hope it helps.
Dave.

clutch oil
 
thanks ive heard of this, how long did you ride for.

I would imagine the cooking oil, corn oil, olive oil all will work for quite some time. I have also heard that fork oil will work. I tossed my KTM clutch slave in the trash for just this reason.

Citroen hydraulic fluid will also work.

After that episode, I replaced it with a slave from Oberon -excellent.

Hope this helps

Citroen hydraulic fluid and baby oil are the two alternatives that I have heard of. Hope you get sorted soon.
cheers

I sent Bruce a text last night with all the suggestions and he messaged me back to say he was able to get hold of some motorex mineral oil and is now back up and running again.

new slave
 
When I travel the HOSI slave is always with me, it´s much better than the original, purchase at www.sigutech.com

Just installed my new Oberon slave yesterday. Very nice piece, but time will tell if it's good...

you mean the fork oil destroyed it?
that is what KTM Quito told me to use even though I have the original Motorex...?!

Exact, oxydation de l'aluminium par effet de piqûres (ou corrosion aqueuse).
Symlptôme atypique d'un manque de fréquence de vidange du circuit de l'embrayage par aspiration.
Mettre autre liquide (Citroen fluide hydraulique) que type motorex (huile végétale anti oxydant) oxydation plus rapide--->support o ring h.s.
Bien à vous
