My neutral is definetly more difficult to find after installing the Evo clutch slave. I have bled out the system several times and I am not seeing any air bubbles. Does the clutch have to disengage further to hit neutral than to hit first or second? I have the adjustable levers and use the 4 position. Maybe I'll try using position 3 or 2 to disengage the clutch further.

how are you bleeding the system. Are you holding the lever down, opening the bleeder, and closing it promptly before the lever hits the handle bars? if you're doing this correctly, maybe the cylinder wasn't installed properly (not trying to send flames here)

It shouldn't have to.

For the aftermarket clutch slaves to give easier lever pull, they have a larger diameter piston. This requires more lever movement to get the same movement distance at the piston/pressure plate.

I think you're on the right track on adjusting the lever out a bit, it should cure the problem.

I've got a Yoyodyne, and I run my lever at the farthest out position (#1 ?) and I can find neutral OK.

I installed my Evo slave cylinder last night and it took forever to bleed all the bubbles out. I haven't had any problems though. I really didn't have to do any lever adjustment. I alternated bleeder valves throughout the process which seemed to help get the air out. I also pumped the lever, then closed the valve then let the lever back out and repeated. This seemed to get the air out if that is your problem. Good luck

Yep, I'm on position 2 now and no problem finding neutral. Thanks for the help. I think Dog is right, to reduce the pull the ratio needs to change. Since the Evo reduces pull by %20 the distance to fully disengage must be longer.
