In the motorcycles Ive owned with hydraulic clutches, I have never experienced a failure. Then again, I make a point of flushing my brake and clutch fluids every year regardless of miles.
The only clutch failure Ive had occurred 100 miles from home in my '81 Honda CB750K about 15 years ago. Only 18K miles on it back then. The cable went down to 5 strands, and the cut ends would stick in the conduit and cause some slippage. Replaced the cable, was fine, til a month later the clutch slipped on accel with plenty of cable slack. New plates..and has been fine ever since.
