KTM 990 Adventure Clutch issue

I had an issue with my 990's clutch today on my ride home from Seattle. The friction point varied hugely. There's no real rhyme or reason to when it would be right next to the bar or way out near the end of the lever's travel area. It's a hydraulic clutch, so I'm hoping it's just an air bubble or some water in the line, but I've also heard it may be something getting in between the friction plates?

I've never experienced anything like this on my cable-operated clutches. Does anyone have any idea what my issue may be? I'm pretty much unwilling to take the bike out right now. As it's my only means of conveyance, that's an issue.

Just checking back in to let you two know you were right. My hydraulic line was filled with water, air, and filthy oil. Now it's much better.

Thanks again!
