Leaking Clutch Fluid

While my K1200Lt is gutted out waiting for the clutch parts to get here, I am left with riding the only other bike that I have in this region, my beautiful R1200C Phoenix edition which I seldom ride. It is 02 with less than 3000miles on it odometer. I have never have problem with this bike other than flat tire. But I noticed that my traffickator to the left will not come on when I depress the switch. Then I notice that I got some oil on my finger when I withdrew my finger from the trafficator switch. It gave me concern. I have no problem getting in and out of gear so far. But it looks like I am having low fluid judging from the indicator window.
Before I dig in, I want some insigth from adepts from this forum on what to expect. Do we have a seal in this area or do I have a bad Clutch cylinder? Please help.

Re: Leaking Clutch Fluid

Here is an exploded view of your clutch parts seen under steering section 32.

I would suggest you pose your question in the Chromeheads site in regards to any others with similar problems.

Re: Leaking Clutch Fluid

Thanks you very much. I was just wondering why I haven't got any response.
