Shifter Porblem

Post by Poohman » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:33 pm



Just wanted to see if I am wrong or Right??? I have bought a new slave clutch, installed it and bled the the line. I am not sure if I bled the line right, do you ever pull in the clutch lever to get fluid running through? I did and kept putting new DOT4 Fluid back in the reservoir. When I go to ride when I hold in the clutch for over a minute or two then it starts to go in gear.... What is my Problem ? ? ? ? ? ? Thanks

Sounds like air in the line or maybe a faulty slave or master cylinder. Why did you replace it?
Do you have a mightyvac? Might wanna try that or reverse bleeding to get it good and remove all the air.

I replace it beacuse I kept loosing fluid and did not know where it was going. Yes I have a vacpump. Do you ever hold in the clutch handle?

Yes, you can hold the lever to increase the flow of fluid but you dont need to continually pull the lever to bleed the system.
