All fluid was drained and the clutch would not engage, as to imply that there could be a leak somewhere down the line. This topic was modified 5 months, 2 weeks ago by Christopher.

A lot of people have switched to this aftermarket version because it’s supposed to have a better seal design. http://www.oberon-performance.co.uk/acatalog/Husqvarna.html November 3, 2018 at 10:52 am #2622 ZwillisParticipant The issue with the master cylinder has happened with the 701 supermoto and some of the Offroad bikes as well. I’d change it before changing the slave cylinder.
