‘18 701 slave failure, does clutch fluid get into engine?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, new to TT and Husqvarna 701.  Last weekend my clutch slave cylinder went bad (less than 1k miles total) and I did not know until after a hour or so long ride down the slab on my way home.  (Great dirt ride over the sierra nevadas on old gold trails before this, which was superb!)

My question is, did the brake fluid that was in my clutch reservoir end up in my crankcase?  If so, how bad is it on the engine?  I am sure it is not good if it got in there.

I am still under warranty, but if I could confirm that clutch fluid did NOT enter my engine, then I will just swap the crappy stock magura slave with a good aftermarket one myself.

Anyone know whether there is another seal between motor and slave besides the one in the slave that gave up the ghost?  Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all, and I did tons of searching but cannot seem to find the answer I am looking for.
