While driving on the interstate I smelled what I thought was gear oil. When I pulled into the rest area I discovered that pulling in the clutch lever did nothing and the lever felt very soft. When I inspected the bike I could see a damp spot on the rear exhaust header pipe but no real leaks. This trip was over only 175 miles into it. I made a few phone calls to get the rescue team coming and went back to looking over the bike. I grabbed the clutch lever and it felt normal and the cluch disengaged enough to roll the bike while it was still in gear. On the highway I thought the smell was my turn for the rear drive. Nice and tight and no leaks. When I was stopping I thought the slave cylinder had failed even though I didn't have any sign of slipping. Then I was thinking maybe the clutch hose had ruptured. Now Ihave no clue what is going on. I am looking for ideas as I sit and wait for the trailer to get here.
