I've said it before and I'll say it again:The Panigale, over 100 mph, best bike in the world, under 100 mph, the worst.

Even the clutch bit? Won't new oil make it better?

I would have clutch and brake fluid changed at the 600 mile service, request Motul. I would not change the clutch slave to Oberon unless you're having operating issues with it. Even then from what I gather it's the master cylinder that may cause issues with some bikes, not the slave.
No need to fix a problem that you are not yet experiencing.
Thanks from psych0hans

Theres nothing wrong with changing to oberon if you want to save money just do the fluid but it is a new bike so it should have been delivered with new fluids.

The clutch slave is a known issue and I didn't want it to fail on me.

I actually bought the bike used with about 3700 miles on the odo. Clutch fluid is black as can be and brake fluid is a dark amber. I'll definitely get them both flushed immediately and will also lay off the oberon till funds are more generously available... lol

You will be fine after the flush. Night and day.

I would have thought in India you would have got a Tuk Tuk? Have you guys got any roads there? Like with tar and shit.....
I only seen videos of India and it looks like a overpopulated under fed hole....and possibly a Ducati scrambler would have been a wiser choice
