One person method for bleeding clutch slave...

Post by tmacey45 »

I'm sure this has been covered, but went through 10 pages with no luck on the subject. I know there are a couple of different methods to bleed off the clutch slave cylinder. My 87 GL1200I needs bled after sitting for a month or so...I'm older and have health issues, but still enjoy the ride when I can. Is there a method of bleeding the slave cylinder by myself, without having to get my reluctant wife involved? Thanks...T

Definitely get yourself a vacuum bleeding kit. Not only does it let you do it yourself, often it is the ONLY way you will successfully bleed the clutch or brake system in your bike.
