Broken Magura slave cyl.

Recommended Posts

So, 30 min into a ride today,, grab the clutch lever.. and........and.....and....nothing... Stop... look.. the SS wire that is the connection from the slave to the clutch lever broke right at the adjustment nipple. :cry: Rode back to the staging area and installed my back up system. And rode for a few more hours.. until.................... until I whacked my foot between the foot peg and a tree stump...... damn that hurt, ended the days ride.. Home we went,, and another visit to the ER.. :cry: Nothing broken,,,, but the toe is huge, and purple :cry: Thanks you Mr Tech8's.. Never,, never, never.. did I say never?,, NEVER ride without the very best boots you can afford

So, anyone have a similar failure? Or is this a just one of those things? I’ll order a new slave cylinder in the morning…or maybe a whole new system for a spare.. but curious if this is a common Magura failure point?

Ya man I second the wear good boots thing! When I was riding Tin cup pass last month I wedged my tech 6's into a big ol rock and dam near pulled my toes off underneath the bike. Thank god for the boots is all I can say, thank god! :cry:

No cable,,, this was on a juice clutch...much different. And no matter how you grease a cable system,, it will never be as good as a Magura Juice clutch.. But thanks for the tip :cry:

Oh the extra weight of the clutch is no problem,, I just have a diet coke with lunch and a bag of baked, not fryed chips to make things even out.

But again, thanks for the tip :cry:

:lol: :lol: What in the world are you talking about??? Use or not use a juice clutch because of the 1 or 2 oz it might add to a bike :cry::lol: :lol: :lol: Ahhhh, no :cry:

I suppose you run 90/90 x 18 rear tires cuz them big fatty's like the 140 Mitch just weight to darn much :p

;) ;) :cry: :cry:
