Magura Clutch !

Actually I got a Magura clutch installed in my '99 YZ400F and I want to check the liquid level but I need what to use if the reservoir needs liquid ! Mineral Oil......? What brand.....? Where can I get it......?

Thanks ! :)

You can use baby oil from any drug store, or ATF works well also.

I have been using fork oil 5W for 2 years now.

Fork oil works fine (Yamaho 01). The only problem is bleeding the system properly. I found that I had to submerge the caliper/piston end completely and then open the banjo bolt while squeezing the lever - not easy with one hand! I did get it to work though.

I remove the slave cylinder piston rod (using a hex-bolt tool on the piston) to bleed the system.

This way I also can "backfill" the system, connecting a tube on the "piston rod hole" whit a syringe.

But I don't think Magura supports that way of doing it, use the link below to find out how magura think it should be done (to cumbersome for me).
