So, last week I started to ride and I stalled while engaging 1st gear. I said, "What are you a rookie?" Well, it happened again a few stops later. Today I get on my bike and same thing three times in a row in my driveway. "What's your deal, Jason?" Well, I then noticed I have very little travel on my clutch lever. "Oh Jesus, help me to get where I am going today."

Clutch weep? There is a little fluid coming out of the puck but not gushing, more like very slow leak. Ideas, fellas???

Sounds like you know what it is. Parts to fix it, $100.

Yep, the clutch slave is wanting to retire.

I just bled the clutch with new DOT 4 fluid. Feels normal. Is that because the weep is slowly allowing air into the system from the actuator cover plug, the actuator or the actuator o-rings?

Is this what I need?: http://www.erikbuellracing.com/store/parts-accesso ries/clutch/ebr-clutch-actuator-cylinder-kit.html

Also: do i need this too when I do it?: http://www.erikbuellracing.com/store/parts-accesso ries/clutch/clutch-release-tool.html

I will need a new actuator cover plug too, right?

Doing a bleed will buy you a little time, but not much.

All you need is the actuator. The tool will make things easier but it can be done with normal wrenchs. The plug is reusable

Oberon also makes a replacement. This has a lifetime warranty. Here is a link to a sample
