Yup, I will give a full review of the solution of the problem. Always good for a reference.

if you remove the push rod, you will see day ligth in the hole... so the only way to prevent chain lube, and more important, sand, lttle stones and who knows what more, to damange the slave cylinder seals, is to block them.

I made that little piece that will at least prevent big stuff coming in... about 1000km I will remove the slave again and check if its effective with chain lube too....

One thing is sure: before I cleaned it, it was very, very dirty inside, there was sand, dirt, chain lube and something more I could not identify but was like the chain lube solvent, a liquid very thin.

Andddddd....it was the clutch slave. Good call to all of the Nostradamus fans here.

Two things:
1. The seal shows signs of a tiny leak in it.
2. The Brembo part has been discontinued and replaced with a new part that comes warranted in a "kit."
Old part was 13231-0005
New part is 99999-0610

Kawasaki said they didn't make many of the old parts to replace on bikes because they didn't foresee premature failure at all. Apparently the clutch slaves are failing on more than they predicted and they released a "kit" with a 99999 prefix part number. Mine didn't have any gunk or rocks, or chain lube in it like I expected, or @aleib noticed. Just a small hole in the seal which would lend me to believe the theory is correct as it took over a week to fail a second time after I changed the fluid.

Kawi also said this part would make the clutch lever easier to pull as it was a complaint. I think the Kawi tech just had the 2015 to 2016 clutch redesign story stuck in his head and that's not really applicable here.

Hope this helps somebody trying to diagnose a problem.

My 2015 bike almost certainly has the original part but I've only ever used Castrol Racing, a dry chain lube and there's no fling. So far the clutch fluid is crystal clear.

Go Fast Or Go Home

So now the question is, should you spend $200 in labor for an OEM part or will you go after market?

I will probably opt for this instead
