KTM 950 Master CYL conversion

The previous owner of my 950SE, converted the clutch master cylinder to a rear brake. I'm wanting to convert it back. I am in the process of ordering the
Magura KTM LC8/690/MX 10.5 Master Cylinder Rebuild Kit

So I can have my hand clutch back. (it has a rekluse now) I'm leaving the Rekluse in but after talking to the guy at Rekluse he confirmed that the hand clutch does make shifting a lot easier. He also has a 950 and knew the issue I was having shifting with the rekluse and no hand clutch.

My question is, what is the best way to clean out the master so i can convert it back to mineral oil.

Thanks!

Just for reference...

Many don't use mineral oil in the clutch..

Cheers

Flush it with the oil of your choosing, would not use brake cleaner because it might harm the rubber etc but that is an unconfirmed theory on my part.

As I recall on my old brit cars,, they recommended alcohol for cleaning up the metal bits and said to use the brake fluid to clean the rubber parts..

I've always used a clean rag and brake fluid to clean up brake parts..

My only concern is getting the clutch master clean and residue free before adding clutch oil.

I was told, you can use cheap mineral massage oil from your local drug store to flush it if you want to save the good oil.

You can use Johnsons baby oil for permanent use.

It gives the bike a nice tender smell. It is mineral oil so works fine. If you are going to use the Magura blood for the purpose of washing baby oil is fine. I use fork 2,5wt oil for lighter operation.
Cheers.
