Now I'm trying to wrap my head around this thing before I tear into it.
You take off the wheel, the shock, and the muffler. The slave cylinder goes around the output shaft and has a throwout bearing on the end.
Now for the clincher.
By just removing said parts, how do you get access to the slave? Shouldn't it be sandwiched between the transmission and the driveshaft? How does the slave come off the same "line" that powers the driveshaft? I'm sure its totally obvious when it comes apart, but coming from the automotive world, you shouldn't be able to change a throwout bearing without splitting the trans off or the driveline.
Not really like a car clutch..no throw out bearing...simply bolted on back of tranny with a couple bolts...takes twenty minutes to swap...+/-
