> Still, I suppose it is possible for the DOT4 to travel down the clutch push rod to the clutch???

Yes, it is, unfortunately. Not as rare of an event as one would like on oilheads.
BMW has went back and forth with Felt seals, rubber, and none on the pushrod, so they seem to be struggling with a definitive answer/solution too. And on some of the oilheads, the little seal (only replaceable from the inside - grrrr) on the end of the input shaft goes, and lets gearoil down the pushrod. I think the last R12GS I worked on had that problem. And its pushrod had NO felt bit or anything else to slow/minimize contamination. Very annoying.
