    Hi, after bringing my bike back in a truck with a lot of furniture I noticed their is a little oil leakage from my clutch lever. I have a feeling this has something to do with having my bike strapped because their might have been something heavy leaning on one of the straps because one of my hand guards has bent in a little and the clutch lever seems to be angled lower than my front break lever. So i have to reach my left hand further forward than my right...

    Any thoughts?

    pretty simple...i unscrewed the top of the reservoir and the plastic seal was not on straight..no issues since then!

    i was on the freeway heading out for a big ride of the canyons..clutch started getting loose..
    ..then i found it hard to change the gears with the clutch..then i couldnt changed the gears so i had to rev and change the gears with no clutch..which mean't getting into neutral before i go to the red light otherwise they wheel could have locked up at low speed in 1st gear?!?..managed to get it to a friends guest house about 10 miles away..next trip to Mr Tim Robel..in a pick-up
