So I'm trying installing the new slave cylender and it won't go in all the way. The nub is lined up but it won't slide in. Anyone had this issue?

I think I found the problem. Oberon didn't drill the notches deep enough and there is a slight shoulder preventing it from going al the way in. Imma file it off tomorow and see.

I just fought mine 2 days ago. Didn't file it though.
Lined it up with the C/L mark and had to press VERY HARD (like the instructions say) and pop! Right in.
The very top lip was actually was very slightly past the outside of the cover.

Amazing difference in clutch pull. About HALF as measured on a luggage scale. You'll love it!

It goes pop like you said but it does not seat all the way. I'm going to file the housing not the slave cyl.

It should go slightly past the outer cover but it won't. Did yours go almost all the way in the pop in?

yes.
Line it up:

Put a 1" deep socket over the hex:

Flip the assembly over and push evenly with both hands against a solid workbench:

The top flange should look like this when seated:

NOT this:

Snapring and done: )

it seated kinda tilted/ skewed in the 'not this' photo. if you notice - the right side is near the edge, or outside it. the left side is well inside. (thats my view anyways)

when i did mine, it required a do-over. i had mis-aligned the little notch the it seats in. (and didnt realize it)
I bled and bled that brake line LOL. couldnt get the air all out. finally disassembled and fixed it.
(wasnt the Oberon part however.. the EBR one)
