This is how I maintain my clutches (in the V and Z06); remove reservoir lid, suck out all old black fluid (the black in the fluid is clutch dust by the way), add new DOT 4, put the lid back on the reservoir, pump the clutch about 25 times (this recirculates the fluid). Repeat the above steps until the fluid is clear.
No worries about sucking too much and having to bleed the system with this method? I love simple maintenance.
I happen to have an open/unused bottle of brake fluid from last year in the garage. What do you guys think about using it in the clutch? I'm not going to use it for the brakes because I'm sure it's at the wet boiling point after being open for 6 months.
I know brake fluid is relatively cheap and I could just get new stuff, just wondering what people think.
