There is another bushing that comes into play here, the one that the pivot bolt goes through in the clutch lever. Honda expects us to replace the lever as a unit when this bushing wears, but DHS Racing has the bushing and simple tool to replace. That pivot bolt should be lubed annually if you want to avoid the wear. The IsoGrips may also contribute and the adjustment number for the lever reach, that little dial up at the pivot point is another variable, if set too loose in combination with the wear and IsoGrips. Then, there is that pesky last bubble of air in the clutch bleeder area that plays gopher with you when bleeding; it helps to get that little sob out of there by running your bleed line straight up for several inches and tapping the bleed tubing with stick or such as you bleed in order to vibrate it away from the right angle bleeder. There is also the possibility of some crud stuck in that little hole in the bottom of the clutch master reservoir under the anti splash guard --- Waldo has posted pics of that several times. "Probably not" wear of the slave.
