bleeding clutch??

Postby roondog » Wed Mar 23, 2011 6:07 pm



Is there a step by step to blled the hyd clutch on an 85 LTD? I have to hold the clutch all the way in to disengage and likewise it will engage with just a slight release. I have gotten replys that a good bleed might help.
Thanks, John

If the clutch fluid has been changed recently or an attempt has been made to bleed the clutch and is not been completely successful, it maybe that there is a small pocket of air at the master cylinder.

Place some rags under the master cylinder to protect any paint on the bike, loosen the banjo bolt (the bolt the holds the brake hose) give the lever a squeeze and tighten the bolt before releasing the lever.

This might squeeze out the trapped air, usually works.
