Pending Group Buy _ video needed

I've been talking to Steve at Oberon about a Group buy on his clutch slave cylinder. These have larger diameter pistons & way better materials for longer life & much reduced lever force. This is especially good for forced induction guys with heavier springs in the clutch. I did the first Oberon lever buy years ago.
Steve asked if we could get a video of replacing the slave cylinder as a "how to" to post. This is a beginner level project, but its much easier if you can actually see it done. Question; Is there anyone here willing to create one for the forum ? I'm out of the country until next year at soonest or I'd spend the 30 minutes to do it. Final edit would probably be less than 5 minutes actual work/demonstration. Thanks

Feel free. You can purchase no problem, but the point of a group buy is that in exchange for a guaranteed quantity sale the vendor gives a special reduced price.

that makes sense most of the other group buys i was looking at are because the vender will not make them unless they have enough interest, like jones cams or Trask outboard bearing

+1 for the buy

I’m on stock springs/clutch and the pull is crazy heavy. I was definitely disappointed how hard the pull was when I drove it around. Especially since we have hydraulic clutches
BigFly just installed his and he loves it

I have Oberon Levers on my 06D. They are excellent. Clutch is pretty smooth not to hard. Oberon makes good stuff.
For down the the road I am buying parts like WP Gasket, extra Rear Breather tube, etc.

Sounds like the opinion is the "clutch slave cylinder" or secondary actuator
(wtvr HD calls it) is prone to failure due to quality as stated.

* If that is the case I'm in for 1 unit thanks.

And the clutch will still full disengage despite reduced lift?

I'm asking this because I am using a smaller master cylinder diameter and now the hand lever needs much more travel way.
