Clutch fluid capacity

So getting ready to use the Motive bleeder on my clutch to flush the system with Castrol GT LMA Dot 4. Can't seem to find the capacity of the clutch system and don't want to overfill/waste LMA by filling up the Motive too much.

Anyone know how much the entire system calls for? I'm sure I could just go with 2 quarts and that would be plenty, but again don't want to waste any if I can avoid it.

While we're at it, planning on doing the brakes as well...but I think they're somewhere in the 2qt ballpark, correct?

I'm not sure there is a downside to draining it first, but if you drain it you'll have a rough idea of what it will take to fill. I'd like to think it will flush it better by draining first (versus pushing the old out)

Well, looks like the clutch capacity is about a quart. Already done! I think it took me longer to write on this thread than it did to flush the clutch using the Motive bleeder. This thing is awesome.

Next up - brakes!

Make that 0.5-0.75 quart for the clutch. Brakes were about 1.5qt total to full bleed each corner.
