I can't comment on that stuff, but I run 10WT fork oil in the Magura setup on my Husky and haven't had any issues with it.

Also you shouldn't have to bleed because the hydraulic clutch is a contained system.

Like Ash said, the hydraulics is a contained system down to the slave cylinder. If you never broke the system, something isn't right with the install. Push rod would be a place to look.

Another thing, these can fool you if the bike isn't running. If you haven't already done so, crank the bitch up and see what it does.

I lost clutch power all of a sudden on my SMC. Apparently it's common with the Magura systems. I had to change my slave cylinder O-ring, flushed new fluid and bleed, no problems since. When my clutch failed, I had lost fluid in the m/c resevoir and noticed bubbles in the fluid when I pulled the lever. The slave cylinders do vary by model.
I picked this fluid up at Carquest. It retails for close to $20. It's a full synthetic hydraulic / mineral oil for clutch and power steering systems on VW / Audi / Porsches. Figured if it was good enough for them, it was good enough for my KTM. :headscrat
