    Reviving this thread. I think the OP wants to change the oil seal that keeps the "motor oil" sealed, and is located in the block itself behind the slave. Mine is weeping here as well, waiting for parts as we speak. I have a slight drool that comes out of the small "weep hole" on the right bottom side of the slave......clutch works fine, no loss of fluid, but looks like motor oil. I ordered the complete slave and this extra seal. Anyone change that one? If so how many skinned knuckles do we have?

    I replaced the entire slave a couple years ago, and now I suspect my oil leak is coming from there. I'll find out when I pull the bike apart next.
    Replacing the slave is a pain to get to, but not really all that hard. I'll be following this thread, as well.

    Me too - clutch slave issues are sort of my "thang"...
    The harder I work, the luckier I get.

    Ok guys, just completed the slave replacement. Wasn’t all that difficult and it took about 2 hours. I did not replace the seal in the block because it did not look like it was leaking. I didn’t want to create a new problem replacing it. The old slave seal looked quite “knackered”. Bled it all and it seems nice and smooth.

    Good work Bobb - that CSC certainly looks like mine did (knackered - just as you say).

    One bit of comfort - I researched the entire ST1300 clutch slave cylinder R&R job quite extensively and in all of those enquiries- not one instance of that seal in the engine block was mentioned.

    Best wishes!

    Pete

    My thanks as well. If it weren't for such a good write up that "mikedo" linked me to {thanks Pete!!}, not so sure that it could be done in this manner...or in the time frame it actually took. Couple of problem areas {for me anyway}.....
    1. The old gasket removal. Like others have said...it is a pain. Period. Be very careful around the oil cooler hose. They do make a spray on gasket remover that really does work, but I didn't have access to it at this point in time, nor did I want to go to the store to get some. Hindsight....I "should have".
    2. Third bolt access adjacent to the oil filter. For that bolt, {once it is loosened} you really need small hands and long fingers to unscrew / screw it in.
    3. On the 3 bolts that hold the slave on.....I used a 1/4" drive ratchet / socket and access to all three bolts was VERY easy. The article said to use wrenches. Personal preference here.....Edit.....correction. Brain fart....not enough coffee. Pete used the ratchet here as well.
    4. I used a headlamp around my noggin for an excellent, bright view of the problem area.
    5. I did not remove the speed sensor as it was not at all in the way.
    6. Have a lot of towels / rags as you work.

    I thought you were leaking motor oil? How is replacing the slave, without replacing the engine block seal, going to help? Is your leak somewhere else?
