How do you bleed the clutch? How do flush the clutch?

Left side in front of the battery area,back of the engine,you should see a steel pipe with a standard bleeder screw.Open it and pump out almost all the fluid.Top it off with new fluid and pump till clear,keeping the master full.
Brake fluid will eat paint.Protect it.
A Mity Vac brake bleeder can also be used.
Don't let the master cylinder go empty.if it does,you inject air into the lines,and it take effort to get them out.

I don't know if you finished your clutch bleed but the right way is: go to a pet store and get a syringe that they use to feed small cats or dogs , get a 2 foot section of tubing. open the clutch bleed fitting and install the tubing on that, put new break fluid in syringe and put the on tubing, open reservoir lid and push fluid backwards up to master cylinder. keep a lot of rags/towels under master cylinder to catch over flow. lock bleeder fitting. pull clutch open and tie back to stay over night. this lets any air out you might have missed. Also, take syringe and tubing off before you ride.
