Clutch fluid leak

Postby furnacedoc » Mon Sep 27, 2010 8:36 pm



Hello, I am leaking a little clutch fluid( #4 brake fluid) out the weep hole in the bottom of the clutch housing under the bike. Do you know if there is a rebuild kit, how hard to repair and has anyone else had any experience with this?

I did a quick search online, and found GL1500 slave cylinder rebuild kits available. I haven't done one, but slave cylinder rebuilds are not all that tough to do. The hardest part is just cleaning the crud off and making sure it's clean when the new parts go in.

Had the same problem. Replaced the secondary slave that's located under the bike. It's simple to do. Just a couple bolts holding it in. The bleeding is harder..... Got to get all the air out.... Kinda hard to hole that handle in and also reach down and loosen the nut to bleed the brake!! To do that, I used a velcro strap. I'd punp the handle a few times, put the velcro on to hold it in, and loosen the nut to bleed it. Then repeat......

That's where a vacuum bleeder (like a Mity Vac) really comes in handy!
