Clutch fade 2010 fx450
Hi all, 3 rides ago my clutch faded, to fix it I laid down on the right hand side then pumped the clutch level a few times and it was good to go again.
2 rides ago I checked the fluid level and it was low so I replaced the slave cylinder seal (no evidence of a leaking from the master) and bled the system, all looked good, I could even change to neutral whilst stationary with the motor running.
On the last ride the clutch was fine until we hit the real tight singles that was 10 kms long (we were also clearing an old trail of fallen logs etc..) it was a warm day 28 deg Celsius, every time the bike heated right up the clutch faded and needed a few pumps to get it working again. After a few minutes on fire trails when the bike cooled a bit the clutch was perfect again?
I don't understand and appreciate any guidance.
Thanks in and advance?
