959 clutch slave cylinder sticking.

So basically brand new bike. Less than 900ks when I first noticed this problem. During a pre ride check over I pulled in the clutch and heard a squeaking noise from around the slave cylinder. Only did it once and then was fine. Today I noticed it again except this time it squeaked consistently. Went for a short ride and when I got home it was worse. Now it was not only squeaking but also locking up and felt like a front brake. I removed the slave cylinder to inspect it and found that the black plastic spacer that fits inside the cylinder and over the end of the clutch push rod was seizing. There was hardly any lube on the spacers o ring so Iím thinking this is what was causing it to stick inside the cylinder. I lubed it with some rubber grease and put it all back together. Itís now silky smooth and quiet. Just some thing to keep an eye on.
