My mech knows how ... It's me
My dealer is an arrogant knucklehead

No. Never do this...... You will not be able to get it in to neutral with the engine running !!!!!!!

Nothing could be truer unless you do it yourself, which, I can't.
If you delaer lets you watch, then thats a different story perhaps, if they dont, you'll never know what they did or didnt do except charge you.

Neutral is O.K. The problem on mine has never been too much oil. I guess there was too litle oil until the TSB was carried out and so the damage was already done. Anyway after my clutch steel (?) disks and lining disks have been replaced, under warranty, together with the clutch booster, everything works as never before.

That's right cpmodem.

You 've gone too far IMHO. Do you still have problems? How is your clutch nowadays? Have you installed the OEM reduction jet?

I have done worse...... The most stupid thing I have done was not to check that the foam I modeled my side tanks with would, when the time came, DISOLVE! Of course I panicked. One friend suggested setting fire to the foam So I cut the back off and dug it out Still that is all behind me now.

I just think it is good to keep my clutch well lubricated without affecting too much the oil pressure in the circuit. So I let it be at 0.5mm.

Nope.

The clutch slave cylinder is a sealed unit. You shouldn't lose any fluid and you shouldn't need to bleed it.
