Clutch bleeding

Started my bike up today to bring up to garage at in laws. Clutch needs bled I believe, Had to pull all the way in to release, was fine when parked. By time I got here I could no longer get it into neutral while running . Any tips to make bleeding it easier? Keep in mind I have never had covers off this bike as of yet. Getting ready to do my winter maintenance for 1st time. Adding rear speakers and air shocks

If the brass bushing in the lever has worn through it will do that and not give much or any warning.

Yep.

The clutch on a 1500 is pretty easy to bleed, the bleeder is just below the alternator and easy to get to. You will probably have to bleed it at the banjo bolt on the master if the fluid has gotten too low.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It will be tomorrow af this point. Haven't got any JIS screwdrivers yet, don't want to mess up the screws on this bike. But I need to check all the fluids while I am at it

If you have the original tool kit you have the correct screwdriver.

I would also bleed/change brake fluid front and rear if you don`t know the history of that maintenence. Not just check fluid level.
