Hi folks - my 2005 Gen 1's clutch lever has gone 'soft' after sitting up for a few weeks and will not engage - as the fluid reservoir appears empty, I have to assume as a stage #1 that this could be the issue (as all OK when it went onto the paddock stand). Trip to Halfords tomorrow - any recommendations as to what fluid should be purchased please?

any DOT 4 brake fluid is fine nothing special required, although I think it wise to find out where the original fluid went before adding more, it's a sealed system (or at least it should be !!) chances are you have a leak so any new fluid will likley go the way of the old.

its most likely the slave cylinder seal has gone, if the side stand hinge is covered thats the cause, replace the seal then fluid Thumbs Up

my fluid disappeared too a few yrs ago, it was the slave , phoned A/P for a upgrade slave ( £90) they said not needed just sent me the new seal, 1/2 hr to an hour  to change etc, still good .
