    Back at it again with another issue(maybe). My clutch lever will only engage within the last 1/2 inch or so of travel. the grab point seems to happen sooner(from full lever pull to fully out) after the engine and transmission warm up a bit. I know its a hydraulic clutch and there is no adjustment. I'm also not experiencing any clutch slippage at all. I know that typically in cars when the clutch pedal goes almost all the way up before engaging it means the clutch is worn out and needs to be replaced. I just want to know if i should be prepared for a clutch replacement soon.

    As i side note when i bled the clutch master cylinder i used dot 3 not dot 4 because that is what i had readily available. I doubt that would make any difference but figured i should mention it.

    ALSO my clutch master has a very minor leak from the lever. Would that mess with the clutch engagement point?

    I know of a case where a chap pulled his Griso engine and clutch out. The clutch was in perfect condition. He'd used the incorrect clutch fluid.

    If the master has a leak, replace it. Fill with DOT 4. It can stand higher heat than DOT 3.
