2008 GL1800 clutch bleed

Postby ericturner » Sat Mar 19, 2011 12:54 pm



I have lost the repair manual CD and need to change my clutch fluid. Now can't find the clutch slave cylinder bleed valve on my '08 GL1800. Obviously, I'm just missing something. Where is it?

Remove frt lower cowl. Remove/drop down evap canister. Now you can see the bleed valve on the frt of the engine.

Hi Red!

I personally managed to do this without removing the cowl, saved a lot of jiggery pokery (a scientific term) trying to put it all back together again. The following is a short writeup I have based on the service manual when I did this as part of my 24K service:

Two bolts undone sideways with a wrench through the slots in the cowl drops the canister and gives you the clearance underneath to attack the bleed nipple.
