    Re: Disc Brake Skimming - Motorcycle

    Maybe you should ask on Proudly Meerkat on FB. I don't know if it is possible, I think the material on the disks are not enough to have it skimmed. I would not do it. Maybe I'm wrong. Good luck.

  29. Discovery 1 Re: 300tdi clutch - pedal in, clutch out - help please

    Yes, then replace the seals on both cylinders, otherwise the next weak seal will fail. I hope this is your problem, otherwise it could get expensive. Good luck.

    It sounds like a seal has gone on either the master or slave clutch cylinders. I would suggest you start by bleeding the clutch before you start stripping anything. Good luck.
