Yes a solution. Finally. I rocked up to the dealership after work yesterday, getting there around 13:30. Artur had done a few test rides on Thursday and Friday having replaced all the parts, i.e master and slave cylinder and the clutch hose itself. He wasn't too sure and asked me to take it out for a spin, but within a mile I could see that the problem was still there. After lots of dismantling of parts to see the only thing left to do was to take the clutch itself apart and that was when there was a Eureka moment. The bearing in the middle of the pressure plate which had been on there for less than six months had seized. Thankfully a replacement bearing was in stock and when it was all put back together, it worked perfectly
Now all I have to do is get the bike ready for a trackday on Monday before I start my holiday. Fairing panels changed over, mirrors off, R&G clutch cover back on to. Looks like the weather may be good too. Looking forward to it.
