Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Clutch Fluid Level Inspection
Hold the clutch fluid reservoir horizontal.
Check that the clutch fluid level of the clutch reservoir is
between the lower [A] and the upper [B] level lines.
If the fluid level is lower than the lower level line, fill the
reservoir to the upper level line in the reservoir.
Since the clutch fluid is the same as the brake fluid, refer
to the Brake Fluid Level Inspection in this chapter for fur-

Mixing brands and types of hydraulic fluid lowers
the fluid's boiling point, cause rubber part to de-
teriorate and can reduce the hydraulic clutch sys-
tem's effectiveness and cause an accident resulting
in injury or death. Do not mix two brands of brake
fluid. Change the fluid in the hydraulic clutch sys-
tem completely if the fluid must be refilled but the
type and brand of the hydraulic fluid that is already
in the reservoir are unidentified.
Clutch Fluid Leak (Clutch Hose and Pipe)
Apply the clutch lever and inspect the clutch fluid leak
from the clutch hose [A], pipe [B] and fittings.
If the clutch fluid leaked from any position, inspect or re-
place the problem part.
Clutch Hose and Pipe Damage and Installation
Inspect the clutch hose, pipe and fittings for deterioration,
cracks and signs of leakage.
The high pressure inside the clutch line can cause fluid to
leak [A] or the hose, pipe to burst if the line is not properly
maintained. Bend and twist the rubber hose while exam-
Replace it if any fraying, cracks [B] or bulges [C] are no-
Check that the hoses are securely connected and banjo
bolts are tightened correctly.

When installing the clutch hose, route the hoses accord-
ing to Cable, Wire, and Hose Routing section in the Ap-
Replace the hose if it has been sharply bent or kinked.
