Clutch problems at high rpm

So whenever i engage my clutch at high rpm say 5k+, the pedal gets low engagement next time i release the clutch.

I rev to 5k with clutch engage then depress and let the rev drop then engage.

Do u think its the masters or slave leaking or a bad clutch itself??

In normal droving situation it function fine. Only when i depress the clutch pedal at high rpm. I also tried going to redline in second then let the car slow back down to 3k clutch engaged all this time and it shifts fine.

The clutch does not slip in any gear. Just the engagement point gets low to the floor and pedal feels weird

I've had the same problem for the last 20k miles. I'm running original stock clutch with just over 200k miles on it... I haven't been able to find anything on the forums with a definitive answer. I end up just pumping the clutch pedal a couple times and everything returns to normal.

No exp in this area but it sounds like a failing valve somewhere along unless the clutch has slowly shown signs of wear instead of it be rapid. Faster would be indicative of a a valve.

These are all symptoms of a self adjusting clutch.. @stilto: 200 k miles out if the clutch is a remarkable feat all its own. The pressure plate on these clutches is spring loaded. As the disc wears. The tension on these springs becomes less and less until the point where the clutch actually starts slipping.
This is also the reason that the pedal becomes soft. When to pump the clutch, it resets the springs, and this the pedal becomes stiff again

Can original flywheels be reused typically or do they end up having too much play by the time clutch needs replacement?

I've had the same problem for about a year. Started around 112K and just hit 125K. I took it to Hond-Auto Specialist last year (local shop that has always treated me right) and they could not duplicate the issue. Because they could not duplicate the issue, they were not comfortable working on it. I'm a firm believer in a good mechanic should always verify/duplicate the issue before taking on the job, so I'm ok they passed on it. If it gets worse, I'll have them look at it again.

Yes you would want to replace it. Not many machine shops turn dual mass flywheels.
