My clutch on my 84DL bites right by the handlebar, is this normal or is my clutch on it's way out? Being hydraulic I presume there is no adjustment. What is normal mileage for clutches on GL1200?

Not normal.Mine starts to pull about half stroke.First thing is to flush all the fluid using a brake vacuum hand tool.Just a little air in the line can cause this problem.Normal life..?..My 81 had 158000 miles and still had no problems.I've heard over 200,000 is not uncommon either.Run it like a drag bike and blow the clutch up next weekend too.
