I drove it that day frommissori to greensburg Pa. I pulled in to get gas
When I started it up, put it in first to let the clutch out. The fro t end went down and the motor died down some. But the bike never moved. The temp gauge wasn't quite half way, it being 96 out. I checked the master cylinder and was almost dry. I put dot 3 in and bled the slave cylinder but still no forward gears. I jacked it up and preyed back the rubber boot covering drive shaft
On start up the back wheels will turn, but I can stop them with my hands while it is gear. Had my wife stop them from turning and the output shaft stops turning
I know I'm late reading this but if I'm not mistaken you should use DOT 4 I'm sure DOT 3 would work in a pinch but as long you are rebuilding the clutch system I would recommend using the correct Fluid.
Ride Safe and Ride Often, Keep the Shiny Side up and Many Happy Miles and Smiles.
