I am talking about the banjo on the clutch hose which fastens to the side of the MC and is similar to that on the brake side.
Vox, the cover still needs to be removed anyway so the fluid level can be monitored as it drops. If the cover is left screwed down tight the rubber diaphram inside twists itself inside out as it is sucked down. Trust me, and don't ask me how I know about this one
BTW Mayo, the same procedure is used if you have an airlock in the front brake master cylinder.
Have you had a good look at the clutch slave to be sure it's not weeping as you have not indicated whether or not it was replaced with the clutch job. With so few miles after the repair, and IF the slave was replaced I would also suggest it would be an air lock. However if it is still the oem slave I would be looking at replacing that pretty quickly as it has the potential to fail and toast up you new clutch. They are relatively cheap - less than a hundred notes from Beemer Boneyard from memory although a bit of a PITA to install
