How to stop clutch oil leaking

Anybody had this problem? I heard that is a normal problem of Capos: the clutch oil is leaking beneath the reservoir cover and is eating the nice black paint of the clutch control reservoir. Anybody knows how to stop the slow but constant leaking from it?

It's either a defective gasket (wrong shape or inconsistent thickness at seal surface) or poor installation (installed with a wrinkle overtightened etc.). Clearly it's a problem and not by design. If you're going to design something to leak it's easier to do without a gasket! Tell the Scuderia boys to fix it right. Should be warranty work, I'd think. ,,,

Clutch on my 1400 intruder empty but cant find any leaks, is it going in my motor?


No it won't leak into the motor, nowhere does the clutch fluid get close to the insides of the engine.

Refill the clutch reservoir to look for leaks,

If you pump the clutch lever it will engage the clutch. when you pull in the lever without doing this it will not engage. How do i fix this problem?


Take cover off the clutch reservoir and check the fluid level. Fill it if necessary. Look for leaks between the clutch lever/reservoir, down the hose to the clutch slave cylinder. If no leaks visible, slowly squeeze clutch lever and release, watching for air or fluid pumping in the reservoir. Repeat until clutch has a solid pull. If the pull doesn't improve and stay good, you'll need to bleed the hose and slave cylinder. Locate the bleed valve at the clutch, squeeze the lever till it's a good solid pull, hold it in, and open the bleed valve. Watch for air bubbles. After doing this several times, you should get nothing but fluid. Refill the reservoir and close it. Good riding

Hi I went to buy a 1982 750 magna today. it started right up and was a little noisy but I think the engine is ok. The problem is that there was no fluid in the clutch reservoir and the bike won't shift...


You'll see a bleed valve at the left side of the engine under the side engine cover.
Top up the oil reservoir.
Loose the bleeder and clean it out.
Replace the bleeder, and put a transparent hose on it, to a bowl.
After a few minutes, the brakefluid should show up in the hose. Look permanently that there is enough fluid in the reservoir!

When fluid flows airbubble free, tighten the bleeder. Feel the cluthhandle, should feel 'nice' now.

Most times, the leak at the clutch piston is internal. You won't see traces at the outside of the engine.
You'll have to dismount the clutch piston to check him.

Fitting Ducati 748 clutch slave cylinder to square case 900 1978


hi,not up to speed on your bike, but if the reservoir is empty then you have a leak,check master cylinder and work your way down to the slave cylinder for anything obvious,it mite be very slight leak but over a long period of time it will empty the reservoir,i know mine does(748)albeit very slowly,clutch slave cylinder is a favourite place for leak as it gets quite warm down there,wouldnt have thought you will need a new clutch
unless it slipping
hope this helps

Clutch not working


Check the clutch fluid in the clutch fluid reservoir near the clutch handle. It may have a leak or may have air in it. If it has air in it it needs to be bled out. Do a google search for bleeding hydraulic clutches on motorcycles.

Oil pro


Rivera pro-clutch is the best clutch to buy. The initial cost hurts a little but you'll be very happy with the results. As far as oil or dry. I had oil and wished I had belt, only because the primary wasn't made to hold oil, so It leaked. No matter how much I tried it still leaked. If you go with oil you only need the oil to touch the teeth on the bottom of the basket. The oil will sling around more then you can imagine.

Stop oil leaking


It's either a defective gasket (wrong shape or inconsistent thickness at seal surface) or poor installation (installed with a wrinkle, overtightened, etc.). Clearly it's a problem and not by design. If you're going to design something to leak, it's easier to do without a gasket! :rolleyes: Tell the Scuderia boys to fix it right. Should be warranty work, I'd think.

Caponored clutch oil leaking


have the exact same problem - I cannot figure out how to stop the cover from weeping fluid. Mine started when I had the clutch replaced about six months ago. Im dropping my bik in for its two year service in a few weeks and Ill see if I can get it fixed under warranty.
