Completed this the other day without any problems. I have found changing through the gears (1 to 6) smoother and quieter. The initial neutral to first is always a dandy regardless. Just Suzuki.
I had previously stripped clean the clutch and rod and replaced fluids.
Also running Syn-X 3000 oil which is semi synthetic which really helps.
Overall I can feel the difference and hoping my fluid stays a little clearer.  :onya:
Anyway, the dust seal can't hurt it.

I have just ordered the clutch seal upgrade for my bike as I'm changing the fluid this weekend and I will clean up the pushrod as par for the course. My question is does the rod just pull out when the fluid has been drained, and pushes back in before you refill the system, or is there any special technique I don't know about.????? :confused1:

Yep, rod just slides out, just be careful not to get crud inside behind the engine seal, as it’s a PITA to change out (read engine strip).  The Hyabusa slave dust seal retrofit is a great mod and keeps it nice and clean.
I try to take one day at a time, however sometimes several days catch up with me at once.
