Re: Clutch Issue
Rattler and Tom offer a good alternative to check if you have a leak. search the forum and you will see several (including me) that had done this. just in the off chance a leak developes at the rear main seal. very good piece of mind with the added benefits of ease of completion. Nothing to remove, just a small hole at the bottom of the clutch housing. If you have a bad seal, you'll get a small amount of oil under your bike. If this occurs, you are looking at replacing the seal at the least. and "since you're there" replacing the clutch...
Think, slave weep hole but for the rear main seal...
