2003 Sportster 883 clutch problem

Hi I have a 883 Sportster and I am having problem with if shifting, I can leave in first and try to go to second and itll click to N. If i get it to shift gears normal I have trouble getting it to downshift, it'll sound like its shifting but not going to the next gear. I took the primary cover off to take a look in there and adjust the clutch and as soon as lossened the screws fluid came out which i dont think its suppose to do, I can not figure out what it is.

Answer this question I have this problem too

You might want to get the factory (or another high quality) service manual, as adjusting the clutch is a bit fidgety. You have to adjust at the release cam, then adjust the slack in the cable, then replace the primary cover and refill the primary case oil.
