How much clutch fluid needed?

I was going to do the BMS clutch valve replacement mod and wondered what type of fluid and how much is needed to the job?

I bought some nice motul brake fluid for the brake fluid change but I'm not sure what the best fluid for the clutch would be.

Correct. If you do it right, you won't need much, 1 bottle of high-quality DOT 4 brake fluid is plenty. I use ATE Typ 200. You must read the DIY here and elsewhere, otherwise you can bleed the master dry, which I did the first time.
