Re: bleeding hydrolic clutch

Greetings all. I had the same problem as y'all. came here and found these lame answers. I finally found the way thru google. just did the cluch and i've got a bitchin feel now. try this: close the bleeder valve on the slave. fill the master full and have someone keep it full. pump clutch pedal 10 times and hold down on 10th. open bleeder valve all the way. let clutch fludi drain out via gravity, till there ain't no more air bubble commin out. if ya need to pump pedal to get it started do so. when ya got no more air in the line, close the bleeder and cap it off. press clucth pedal again and hold the shift fork in the open position. now press the slave cylinder rod back into the slave cylinder a bunch of times. the person keeping the master full should see air bubble popping up. keep pressing the slave cyl pin until there ain't no more bubbles. fill master to the brim and cap. I'll bet your clutch is finally workin like it used to. Mine is [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: bleeding hydrolic clutch

I ride motocross and the way i bleed my clutch is with a syringe(sp?) hooked up to the bleeder. i imagine this would work for the trucks too. you just fill the syringe,put the hose from it on the bleeder, then crack it and push the plunger down, this will push air up through your system. (and we all know air would rather go up them down.) this will fill you resivoir so keep an eye on it and and remove excess fluid. if you start w/ a dry system, once the cylinder is full the system is free of air. dont see why this wont work, and shuld be quick and easy.
