A little more info needed, when you say it stopped working do you mean you have no pressure at the handle bar lever? Is there evidence of a leak at either the master or slave cylinders? Is there still fluid in the master cyl.? Does the clutch still have pressure but the gears grind when you try to change them?
Leaks usually mean a rebuild of the master and/or the slave cly. Dragging clutch may just be as easy as flushing out the system with new fluid to get rid of the old contaminated fluid and chase out any air in the system.
