Got back on the bike for the first time a few weeks ago after an accident which left me with a broken ankle and drove my bike back from Argentina to Brazil - it had been in Argentina for over 6 months but fortunately I had no problems with the border control. Anyway, bike was flawless until I was within 10km of destination. I pulled into a garage for fuel and as I was pulling away after filling up I lost most of the "bite" in my clutch - anyway, managed to just make it to the drop off point where my bike was to be transported back home. The bike only has done about 15,000 miles although it is a 1998 model - engine is like new. Is this unusual - I am trying to figure out what it could be before my mechanic gives me the bad news. I have been told that a new clutch for this bike will cost $$$$$.
Any thoughts - I cannot believe it can be the clutch after only 15,000 miles.
