bleeding clutch

Postby beaubaxter » Mon Mar 08, 2010 9:54 am



it took me a while but i beleive i have gotten all the air out of the line after a quart of brake fluid and takeing the slave cylinder out and takeing to the honda dealer! i was getting fluid out of bleeder screw bout was not getting any pressure at the handle.so eventually i tried to get the air out of the master cylinder by loosening the brake line with the handle in did that twice and now i have pressure with the handle i knew eventually i would get it now i just have to get some one to help me get it off the center stand and see if the clutch is stuck together.been to cold outside to work on it to much

well the clutch works good the bike went down the road and shifted fine i almost gave up ! the honda dealer and the shop manual never said anything about bleeding the clutch from the banjo nut. if wasnt for my old pontiac i would of never thought of it. i just changed the front brakes from drums to disc brakes and the new master cylinder had bleeder screws on it !

Glad to hear you got it going - and I'm jealous you were out on the road with it. I'm outside Cleveland as well, and my bike is still in winter maintenance - parts pulled off. Perhaps with the rain over the next few days, I'll get some time to get it taken care of.

Get a Brake Bleeder and Vacuum Pump Kit the next time you need to bleed brakes on any thing, you will be glad you did.
To see one of these bleeder kits check the link out.

Hope this helps you and any others out that might want a better way of bleeding and getting all the air out of the lines.

Harbor Freight also sells the Mity-Vac, which is the one I bought when I redid all my brakes last year. It is a lifesaver, and makes bleeding brakes so easy, it's almost fun! :)

i bought a vacum bleeder kit and it did not work that is when i got discourage i asked a lot of people i think the honda dealer hates me and thinks i am a idiot i have never claimed to be a machanic i know enough to get me in trouble and i always ask a lot of questions ! but it is not brain surgery and if you dont give up eventually you will get it!
