Clutch went out? Bike only 200 miles on it.

So the clutch went out on my new Husqvarna this morning. I noticed a greenish oil dripping off the bottom of the frame over the last week so I believe this to be clutch fluid, plus the reservoir is empty. Looks like there is some oil behind where the clutch line goes into the bike. If the leak is on the outside of bike and on the bike end of the line then it probably is leaking where the line is crimped onto the banjo bolt. Would this be safe to assume? Could it really even be anything else?

Probably the line or the bleeder is loose.

I'm just glad it was an outside leak. Cool, I checked the bleeder and it was closed so I ordered a new line. The bike has some quirks but thankfully it's easy to work on. I guess it's the price you pay for this much fun.
