Weekend before last went for a ride and did a lot of gnarly hill climbs, kind of rugged riding in general - went down a bunch of times, none too major as I didn't break anything on my bike, mostly just get-offs. None the less, my clutch got a lot of use that day. When I got home and cleaned my bike I noticed that when I pulled the clutch in and let it out, the Magura
slave cylinder would click (only one "click" per stroke). It was just a little click on the release. I though no biggie, so I ignored it and by this last Saturday it had actually disappeared. So I head out on my ride, more of the same hill climbs, but more single track trails where you can open up and rip. About mid day I noticed that I was leaking some fluid from my slave cylinder, the whole area of my slave and clutch arm was wet with fluid. Not like the fluid was pouring out, but slowly leaking enough to wet the area of about a 6" diameter circle around the slave. Toward the end of the day, I was climbing this gnarly rutted-out hill and got all squirrelly and dropped my bike with the left side (clutch side) on the downhill. I pulled the clutch in when the bike was down (maybe got air in it?) and eventually made it up the hill from that point. When I got to the top, I noticed I didn't have much clutch pull, and the clutch was dragging some. About 10 minutes later of limited use, I had no clutch left. When I pulled the clutch lever
in, the slave would not do anything. Yesterday I checked the oil level in the master cyl. and It was not too low, but I could tell there was some missing. Has anyone had this happen?
So does this sound like air got in the line or something? Why would it be leaking from the slave? Do I need to rebuild the slave? Any help would be greatly appreciated...
