    Fork Oild instead of Mineral Oil for the Clutch

    Had to change the mineral oil on my K12S. Got a new Oberon slave cylinder, and a new master cylinder.
    Couldn't find my bottles of blue mineral oil, so I used 5W fork oil.
    Is there an issue?
    It's just oil, right?

    Mineral oil is more refined. Not sure if that would make a difference.

        Fork oil is also hydrophilic meaning it will absorb water. Ya might want to flush it out and replace with mineral oil.
