Re: Think I found it - Oil leak at push rod
The clutch slave is an Evo unit so it doesn't have the stock set-ups o-ring.
The pressure plate bearing has 6k on it. It's one that comes with Speedy Moto plates. I had the plate off a while ago and checked the bearing of any signs of binding. It spun freely w/o any signs of binding/grinding/roughness. But at 6k, it wouldn't kill me to replace it.
The current push rod is less than 200 miles old. When I got it I didn't note any burrs or damage - but I didn't look over it with a magnifying glass either.
I have not pulled it from the bike as of yet to look for signs of wear.
The old one showed signs of wear - but it was 24k miles old, so that's kind of expected.
What's a good way to check the rod for spinning?
