Edit header * slave system

Numerous Panigales have had tightening clutch pull issues. Some spoke of service scotchbriting the slave plunger while others spoke of water contamination etc. Have any SLers had clutch issues?
The cure as per Mig1199 elsewhere (Thanks Mig!): "Only cure for tight tolerance problems or stiff clutch action is: Remove your piston slave, scotch brite it and apply a metal polish compound to polish the cylinder walls. Once Polished, apply heat resistant grease onto the cylinder slave, dab a bit on the rod end and add a thin film of [High Temp] grease on the long rod. Then, re install.
A must to replace stock original clutch fluid to Motul's DOT 5.1 RBF600 brake fluid which has a higher boiling point.
With that all done, problem will be solved 100%. Iv'e done these myself on my previous Ducati's in the past."

Superleggera aeronauts, Truly appreciate input regarding this or any other interesting experiences beyond the norm from this 'Toro del Wicked'!

Not sure about the slave system, but your brake fluid information is spot on -)
