My hydraulic clutch conversion is doing weird things. In the morning it was easy to change gears and it started engaging just barely after I started releasing the lever. After a 350 mile ride today it is harder to shift into neutral when stopped and the clutch engages almost to the end of releasing the lever. I can't feel it slipping. Do you think I just need to swap out the Magura fluid? Can I really use ATF instead of Magura fluid?

On an unrelated note, I love this bike! It mountain goats up rutted out hills. The Renazco seat only started bugging me after 7 hours of my 10 hour ride. It's way under sprung for my 285 pounds. The Scott's steering damper is worth it's weight in gold.

sounds like maybe your clutch needs to be bled?

Quick question for you 640 ADVers
Will the down pipe come off without removing subframe etc?
Mine has developed a couple of small holes near where it attaches to the back box (by the spring hanger)
Was going to try an repair before forking out for a new one
Thanks

I don't think you can use ATF. If I remember right the fluid is a mineral oil based. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Yes its mineral oil.
I had to use standard fluid to get myself home when the piston in the lever failed.
Was told by KTM that non mineral fluid would rot the rubber seals in the clutch.
I had to bleed from clutch to lever to make sure all was remove.

Mineral oil and ATF will work for the clutch.
When you say you used "regular" fluid, what do you mean?
If you are referring to DOT 3,4,or 5 brake fluid, then all the seals in the clutch system will need to be replaced as they will have absorbed the DOT fluid and are now swelled.

Cheers

Hi all,


I am looking to buy fuel hose pipe for my '02 Adventure. I cant acces the bike though cause I am away from home for work at the moment... Does anybody remember the inner diameter of the fuel hose pipe? Looking to buy some quick fit coupling connectors and I was thinking to replace the pipe as well ...

Cheers...

Mine is a 5/16" fuel line and my guess is that is universal across years, but lord knows I could be wrong.

Motorex makes the proper mineral oil if you can find any? I wonder if Shimano disk brake mineral oil would work?
