Yeah our clutch fluid/system sucks and is part of the problem with shifting at high RPM. Really surprised there hasn't been an aftermarket fix yet. Change your fluid often... :(

I had mine changed at 30K miles and while not crystal clear it was pretty clean. Guess I should use the clutch more often.

Shame that its not like my old TL1000R sport bike. Hydraulic clutch sucked so I changed it to a cable clutch. Simple fix!

No doubt, this is my first hydro clutch vehicle. Ive had Mustangs in the past, love the adjustable cable systems.
