Anyone know the part no for the clutch actuator? The part that hangs on the side of the clutch and your fluid from your resivoir runs to?

Are you talking about the secondary clutch actuator? Where the bleed screw is? If so, the P/N (assuming the 'R is the same as the other bikes, I have the '06 R parts book) is 36779-05k. The repair Kit P/N is 36769-05K.

If you take the actuator off you will lose the fluid in the line and they are a pain to bleed so I don't suggest you do it until you have the new unit in your hand. If I remember right you had a clutch some times and sometimes you didn't. Unless your loosing fluid the odds are that you have a bad master and not a bad actuator.

Max, do to all of the small metal shavings I decided to replace the entire package. Not sure if the metal flakes did any damage to the actuator itself.

I doubt they ever made it into the line at all. Most likely they came from a spring or other part on the back side of the master.

I was just trying to be a little more safe than sorry. Thanks for the input everyone.

I flushed my line recently and think I had the same type of stuff in my fluid even though I had just flushed it a few months ago - I never thought to check it with a magnet. When I flushed it with Max's awesome pressure bleeder I was able to see that it wasn't in the line. Only the fluid in the master looked this way.

I did not have your other symptoms, though.

So I went with the number that chicago H-D gave me 36779-01kA. Secondary clutch actuator, it does not have a metal button in the middle the entire boot sourounds the actuator. Can anyone verify if this is the correct part? Bike functions fine.
