So after a few calls to Metropolis, a standard slave cylinder is just under £140. Not ideal. I could go second hand and source one off ebay, but I'd rather not. This left a third more interesting option. I called the team at Conquest Carbon www.conquestcarbon.com and spoke to my mate Steve who works there and after 3mins, I now have a Ducabike one making its way to my address at this very moment for less that the dull standard one. I still needed to order the O rings etc, so turned to Mike and his team at Metropolis who were happy to help a man in need.
Cross fingers I should have the bike back within a week or so. Then I'll tax her and get her back out on the road. I sense a long ride coming.
Looking at Conquest Carbons site, I've started looking at lots of really nice things and I can easily see myself spending some more money on a few bits here and there. They do a lovely range of rear sprocket carriers, then there is the axle nuts, ooh look new levers and have a look at this, an awesome looking slipper clutch......the more I think about it, the more I realise I either need to win the lottery, or get myself a sponsorship deal.....any takers?
