I love it when a newbee discovers thread that is years old and offers a fix to an old problem. Wow, if spraying brake cleaner through a hole in the clutch housing will fix a slipping clutch, that's a significant contribution to the Hall of Wisdom.
Worth trying, no doubt. Squirting brake (cleaning) fluid through a hole in the intermediate case sure would be lots easier than tearing the bike down for a clutch replacement.
Has it been done? Did it work? I'd love to see pictures and a step by step description of the process. Also, and objective test of the resolution of the problem, i.e. A previously slipping clutch and as an objective as possible proof that the problem has been fixed: what gear, what speed, what RPM, level road? No more slipping under all conditions?
I've learned a lot from folks who have posted to this board, but I'm always suspicious of folks who post, "shooting from the hip", about theoretical fixes to problems they themselves have never had.
...Just trying to keep the process "honest".
