Have you tried bleeding the system to see if air is getting into it?
Any chance your fluid is contaminated? This spring my clutch was acting up mushy feel and barely disengaging the engine/transmission I completly changed the fluid with a new SEALED container of brake fluid and the problem went away. Never saw any bubbles either but the fluid was dark and dirty.
Certainly this discolouration of clutch fluid seems to be common on all the Guzzis I've dealt with. Why clutch fluid more so than brake fluid I can't really fathom but the fact is it goes 'Off' really quickly.Some bikes this gives problems with. Some, like mine, seem to be impervious to problems.Simple fact of the matter is that unlike V11's the CARC bikes and Cali 14 are so easy to bleed that not doing it every 10,000 Km service would seem a bit silly. Its not as if its a big or difficult job and the cost is minimal.Pete
The odd thing is that bike went the first few years and 15k miles without any clutch fluid changes or problems. Why has it gotten more needy now.
Sounds like either the slave or master piston is binding, possibly the pushrod but I think it unlikely.Pete
VERY interesting...what's the explanation for the lever feel?
This is very interesting indeed.May I ask how you flushed/cleaned the clutch with the brake cleaner?I might try that myself if you could let me know.RegardsMaik
I know you feel like things have improved with the flush, but here's my 2 cents;If the master cylinder piston is slugish, then might it not be failing to return enough to open the port to the reservoir? That would mean you aren't getting any compensation for wear, plus you aren't getting as much plunger throw as you should be.Phil
