Dave miraculously had managed to order a new slave cylinder from recluse. It arrived Sat morning.

A big thanks to Kurt from black dog cycle works & CJ racer for their help too.

We installed it very efficiently. Being clean freaks we used a rather liberal amount of break cleaner to get rid of the baby oil. Plus the dumb aussie rider thought that flushing the lines out with petrol would be a good idea too.

It turned out that the break cleaner had ran down the choke cable all the way to where the cable splits to both chokes.

Inside is a piston that connects the one cable to the two cable y piece.

The brake cleaner had melted the outer tube & bonded it to the piston inside. Result being no choke. So bike now has carbies off it & hopefully i can order new choke cables today.

Shit happens.

So today my XD4 should arrive. My wolfman bags are just awesome too btw.
