Problems with Bleeding the Clutch

Postby CShafer » Sun Jul 04, 2010 8:29 pm



I have a 1987 Goldwing Aspencade 1200. I rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder and now I cannot get the air out of it. Could it be bypassing in the master cylinder.

Try this as I have found it to work. I asume you have it all hooked up and ready. First, the clutch slave cylinder is way down near the bottom of the engine. The master cylinder is way over the top of the engine. The air bubbles in the hose will tend to travel to the top faster than you can pump and bleed at the bottom. Cover your fairing well and crack the hose bolt at the master cylinder and bleed as much air out here as posible. It may take a couple "squirts". Once the air is out of the hose, the master cylinder will be easy. This works good for the the brakes also.

Thanks again to Goldtr6c. The suggestion he gave me worked for bleeding the clutch!
