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. ,,,

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.

How to adjust clutch cable


I don't think there is an adjustment at the clutch handle.If your trying to bleed the clutch (being hydraulic) it is on the side of the engine left side as your sitting on the bike / get a hose and a bottle and attach to the bleeder valve on the clutch slave cylinder / remove clutch reservoir cover and have a towel covering all and any paint (be very careful brake fluid will eat paint if left on the paint for too long) attach hose to bleeder valve and the other end of the hose in the bottle/ loosen the valve at this point let gravity do the work/ DO NOT LET THE RESERVOIR GET LOW ON FLUID IF AIR GETS IN THE LINE IT IS VERY HARD TO REMOVE. If your feeling bold you can pull in the clutch handle and close the valve then let go of the handle and reopen the valve pull the clutch handle and close the valve repeat repeat and so on until you have flushed about a 12 oz bottle of fluid through the system, when done close all valve and top off fluid to proper level ( should be a high level mark on the reservoir) reinstall cap and check lever feel . If it is a cable there should be an adjustment in the cable itself or on the engine. the adjustment should be a 10mm or 12mm sized wrench loosen and lengthen the cable to take any slack, you can also adjust the clutch lever this way. Let me know if this helps or if there is a separate concern.

Ho to replace clutch fluid


Use a cheap dollar store turkey baster and **** it out of the master cylinder reservoir. Repeat it a couple of times and you have changed 90% of the fluid. Wash any spilled brake fluid off with water right away it eats paint very quickly.

The car leaks oil only when engine runs, intermittently,a trail of oil yesterday as moved out of garage ,today nothing .looks to be comming from valve cover,which happens routinely with these engines but...


the oil could be leaking from valve cover and sitting in a bottom engine cover(plastic covers on bottom of car) and oil trail when move, will leak more when engine hot as oil gets thinner and easier to escape. Would replace gaskep asap or will cover engine in black sticky muck which is not nice to try and clean and engine oil is not the best thing to get off your garage floor.

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.

Clutch


Should be two small phillips srews holding the top on the clutch reservoir.Use tight fitting screwdriver so as not to strip these screws. Be very carful not to spill any fluid on your paintjob as this is probably brake fluid and will EAT your paint. If the fluid is clear it is brake fluid. If it is red it's tranny fluid...If you're losing fluid you most likely have a leak and should have it fixed. If you add fluid and the clutch still does'nt work you will need to do a proper bleeding......Good Luck to you !....Tim

ST2 98 Zero clutch lever tension


Some how, you must have gotten air into the system. My guess is that when you pulled the lever which shot oil in your eye, the wave in the fluid must have allowed an air bubble into the inlet of the master cylinder right about the time you were releasing the lever. Air compresses, but liquid doesnt, so now when you pull the lever, you are just compressing the air bubble.

The good news is that to fix the problem, you should only have to bleed the system.

Since the air bubble is likely at the top of the line where it meets the master cylinder, I have a tip that may or may not save you some time from the usual bleeding method.


First cover any painted surfaces of the bike with some towels or something because dot 4 will eat paint.

Next, loosen the hydrolic fitting where it meets the master cylinder, then snug it just slightly (your just trying to make it so you can loosen and tighten it repeatedly with ease)

Now, slowly (so it doesnt shoot fluid everywhere, pull the leaver all the way to the handle bar and hold it there.

Next loosen the fitting just enough to let the fluid run out.

Now snug the fitting back up, then release the leaver.

You may have to repeat this severla times, and if that hasnt taken care of the problem, then you will have to go about the usual bleeding procedure which you can find in your service manual.

Dont forget to keep an eye on the fluid level while you do this, and fill it as needed. If you run it out of fluid then you will allow even more air into the system.

Also, clean any dot 4 off of anything it comes in contact with on the bike as soon as possible. If allowed to sit on a painted surface for a long time, it will ruin the paint.

where is the leak from sounds like brake or clutch fluid as oil is coloured. Check the level of the brake/clutch fluid reservoir in the front of the car it is a common reservoir supplying both. the slave cylinder fo the clutch is located on the gear box in the engine compartment left hand side towards the bulkhead on a large black steel bracket these are the most common componets to leak. easy to change and not very expensive.
