Thanks
(2) is pretty normal with a wet clutch. The oil sticks the plates together enough that it will drive the unloaded wheel.

May as Mook sez, but if you have loss of lever, that is it's beginning to feel like a limp,uh, noodle, then you have a problem. At first you'll have less and less pull at the lever from the top, eventually the lever will just flop back and forth. At least that's what I've been experiencing. The clutch itself works, just no lever pressure.

Evo - Two Thumbs Up

I just had the 1,000 km service done on my 2011 990 and had the OEM clutch slave cylinder replaced with an EVO unit. I was noticing that shifting was becoming inconsistent - sometimes silky smooth and other times a bit notchy - depending on engine rpm during the shift. Both upshifting and downshifting.

While there was no defect with the OEM unit, I can say that the EVO unit made a 100% difference. The notchiness is now a thing of the past.

Two thumbs up for the EVO!!!

It seems to me you are experiencing dragging clutch.

I don't thing it is slave failure. Your bike has very low milleage to have worn-distorted clutch discs. I would suggest:
1) you make sure you have an oil reduction jet installed and not clogged nor a plug.
2) your deeper steel disc could have a groove on its deepest side, made from contacting the belevile spring ring. You could change its place with another steel disc. That sometimes cures dragging clutch.
Sorry for kidnapping my thread.
Cheers.

Riding today and the temps were in the high 90's. Got bogged down in traffic being stopped and diverted by a murder in vestigation! Felt like the clutch was dragging a bit, and I managed to stall it right in front of the guy directing traffic away from the scene. Nice. get it going, but twice more the bike stalled on me. Finally got clear and found a place to stop and see what was going on. Clutch lever was good feeling, engagement felt solid.

Got is going abd headed home with no issue. But, walked out in the garage a nbit ago and there was a drop of oil under the bike. Coming from the slave. Pulled it off and found the c clip inside has broken about a 1/4" off! Either way, I've been looking at slave cylinders this evening. i guess the Oberon and Evo are it as far as aftermarket.

But, think it's okay to ride without a full c- clip in there? It'll be at least a few days before I get a new one in...

Gonna see if I can pinpoint the leak also. Is the o-ring that everyone refers to the one just outside the piston on the inside face of the slave?

What's the feeling of a dragging clutch (Gefr you can answer that in greek if you wish). I'm currently on a long trip to UK and you can call me paranoid but I feel that the master cylinder (yes the magura one) feels like its having its last operational moments (no oil present at the joint with the lever though, I've changed 2 of these so far in two years)..

I thought there weren't any issues with the newer models (at least in my case a 2009 and after 32k km everything's alright). ...
