Clutch Loss question
2018 CVO Roadglide. Installed the AIM Corp Lightforce clutch actuator last November. Version 1.
Have had zero issues, including a 2000 mile trip, until Sunday.
Sunday coming home, clutch started acting up. Disengaging less and less, until finally, pulling in driveway, it failed to disengage.
Upon inspection, my fluid reservoir was low, but not empty. After exhaust cooled down, I removed cover. No signs of leaks, all connections tight. I filled the reservoir, and voila, clutch fully disengages, no issues. Two short rides to and from work before the rain gets here and reservoir still full, no leaks observed.
So, where did the fluid go?
I know the Harley recall corrected an issue where the seals allowed the clutch fluid to enter the transmission. Although I have an aftermarket part, that is a possiblility. Is there any way to confirm that?
Is there any other explanation for the loss of fluid with no external leaks?
Thanks up front for any advice.
