    Too much oil in a wet clutch doesn't cause it to wear out. Warranty or Consumer Protection for sure.

    Hydraulic fluid in the clutch actuator.

    I've had a good chat with the mechanic he's not trying to rip me off or anything.

    Thanks for everyone's concern though.

    Hydraulic fluid is the medium that transfers force
    Lever supplies movement....to push slave cylinder
    The only way hydraulic fluid can prevent " full engagement " of clutch plates is lever clearance is wrong/ too small.
    Unless the interpretation is wrong.. it's still bullshit..
    You are in full control of lever movement..keep fingers off if not using clutch..easy
    Leaking seals will reduce lever ability to transfer force through fluid...
    Something is holding clutch...in released position..
    Pic of fluid level..causing clutch slip...pls ?
    And free of charge when " mechanic" is wrong.?

    Who is this mechanic? there is supposed to be hydraulic fluid in the actuating mechanism...as stated its what transferes the force via pressure to the slave cylinder and then to the push rod...also how the fuck would anyone be able to tell if hydraulic fluid had contaminated the oil...its shared between the engine and gearbox any contamination of fluid would be thouroughly mixed....as it also an oil. Is he saying the plates are contaminated....they run in an oil bath.

    I would suspect they put friction modified oil in by mistake and its caused the clutch to slip.

    Hydraulic fluid in a hydraulic clutch? Crickey.

    Did you have any issues changing gears before the breakdown?

    This is great.....a clutch with hyd fluid in it.....surely he means brake fluid..if it is hyd fluid all the seals will be fukd.....full stop

    The slave cyl shits itself after sitting for a few months.

    these gems have Honda Factory Laziness built in..... earth points in the wiring harness-fuse blade corrosion/RR too small -not up to all the electrics/Poor suspension and chassis alignment/fork twist and tyre pressure issues...

    Since 2002 down to 400 cc units....

    but most of all clutch springs are weak as..cause disengagement at high rpm/shudder from take off and rattle at idle..."normal says one owner.."

    Check all the recalls have been done... put vin no. in honda website..

    Many mods to be done to make an old mans bike a joy to ride..soz if I offend.....just sayin'

    You do know that you can get those sparks for nothing right?...heaps of workshops toss them into the rubbish skips...you'll have to jump in though...they usually fall to the bottom.

    Thanks for the heads up the guy at ATOMS reckon I had to pay for 'em...

    I can skip dive the engineering joint up the road from work....They said some old sparks don't work in the Sunlight ...I'll just get the newer ones....

    I have a spark magnet I picked up on Ebai

    I'm hiring a striped spray gun for the fence job--I'll just use two colours ....be heaps quicker than all that masking n shit...
