Clutch servo push-rod

Has anyone replaced the clutch servo push rod on a 1994 ZX9R? Does it come out from the servo side or clutch side I could not find a reference to it in the manual.

Has you got's the dread'd oil leak around the slave cylinder or is there something actually wrong with the actuator rod??

The easiest way is to pull the slave cylinder and pull the rod out from that side. If I'm not mistaken there is a little cup-like cover over the end of the rod that actually disengages the clutch plates. Be looking for it when you pull the rod. It may or may not come out with it.

Yup I have the leak however it is not to bad it pools behind the servo then leaks a drop every now and then. Also I have heard that it is normally the rod that creates the leak not the seals.

If you are replacing the rod, just replace the seals.
I'm doing this right now also, got all my parts from cheapcycleparts.com
rod was like $18, seals were like $5.
It's a quick job.

To remove the rod:
Remove clutch piston
Remove sprocket cover
Remove clutch rod cap
Remove clutch rod
Install new clutch rod
Install clutch rod cap
Install sprocket cover
Install clutch piston

Done.
If you are doing the seals, you'll have to remove the case under the sprocket cover and there are 2 seals under there, one for the clutch rod and the other for the sprocket shaft.
Either way, its simple.

Hey man,
I haven't replaced my clutch yet, i'm still trying to find a good deal, the best i found was EBC metal plates, kevlar plates and stiffer springs for $160 shipped.
I haven't done the other stuff yet either, I am in need an impact to get the sprocket nut off.
And I plan on doing all of this at once, since i bought new parts for the entire clutch system (push rod, push rod plate, seal x2, case gasket and clutch)
I'll keep ya posted though.

When it came time to replace my chain and sprockets I almost had a shop do it because of the stories that I heard getting the sprocket nut off. So I bought a long breaker bar (2.5-3') from Harbor freight tools stuck a composite axe handle between the rear wheel and swing arm and it came off almost without effort. Hope you have the same experience Jowek.

I am nervous about rounding the nut off.
Plus, it gives me a reason to get a nice 1/2" impact wrench.
