How cold is it there?

You have a hydraulic clutch, sounds like you are low on fluid possibly - feed off the brake resevoir, check your brake fluid. I ask about the temp bacause I once had a hyd clutch that wouldn't come back up once the temp dropped below minus 25*F. The fluid sort of gelled on me, and my mashing the clutch with the gelled fluid tore a seal. Lost my clutch completely coming over the Vail Summit - speed shifting all the way from there to sunny So Cal.
