This is the method many of us use successfully, after all else fails. That is cracking the banjo both at the Master Cylinder and bleeding it. It gets asked so often that I decided to do a short clip.
This was a GL1200 Aspencade,it works onother Goldwing models with hydraulic clutches.


A page with photos to go with itwill be ready soon.

Those tips are priceless. Thanks for taking the time to record them. I like the way they are short and to the point with minimal or no dialog.
Too many other guys making videos want to play at being actor.

I had similar trouble with my 84 Aspencade so I solved the problem by fitting banjo bolts with built in bleed nipples at the lever and the slave end. Problem solved.

Remember this; Your mind is like a parachute, it only works when it is open.

Just used this great video to bleed mine after I lost everything probably have to do a rebuild but it sure seems okay now. I like the bleed valve deal where did you pick those up?

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time.

Just make sure you DO NOT get brake fluid on any of the bike surfaces.
