Hi,

I've had exactly the same thing myself. I initially put it down to when i did my first bleed of the clutch system. I thought it dropped because some excess air may have been trapped and had now left the system. I topped it up but its still continuing to drop slowly.

As with yourself, there are now obvious fluid leaks and mine seems to run fine.

All i can assume the reasonng behind it is:

a) clutch plates are excessivley wearing
b) hoses are worn

Looking to P/X mine for a Aprilia Tuono in a couple of weeks so it'll be someone elses problem then :wink: .

found it

Going in for new slave and clutch cover because the brake fluid ate the paint. Thankfully with 3 days left on warranty
