Clutch engagement after an oil change
While I had the tupperware off, and since it's been about 4K miles from the last oil change, I figured I'd flush the old and refill with new.
Used BMW 10w40 - OEM filter, etc...
On my little "checking to make sure she 'aint blown up" test ride before the real fettle-fix test tomorrow, I noticed that the clutch engage point is now much different than before. I imagine this is due to the oil change with it being a wet clutch and all, but exactly why would this happen? Different oil level (it's the same as it was before but may be marginally different?)? Viscocity change from whatever the dealer put in the last time? Something else?
For what it's worth, my clutch used to engage at about the halfway mark of lever travel. After the oil change, it engages right at the very end of travel.
Curious - no biggie, but thought I'd mention it since I didn't find any other posts relating to this.
