Hi I have a 1984 Naked GL1200 Just got it ,it has only 1174 miles on it & looks like new

But the clutch is not working, Have tried to bleed it & there looks like a lot of air ,but when you pull the lever there is not a lot of fluid movement

So I think it needs new seals in the master cylinder ??? if so how do I strip it, there is like a rubber boot where the lever plunger goes into, how does that rubber boot come out & then is there a circlip behind it ????



Thanks Rob

Yes there are circlips. Once you start removing stuff you'll see it's simple.But you may be getting ahead of yourself.

Have you tried to bleedthe systemwith a vacuum bleeder? They really do make a big difference.

Also, inspect the slave cylinder for leaks or sticking.

See what happens when you post in the Introduction forum.:ROFL:

Look at your master cylinder, it goes uphill to the hose fitting, place the bike upright with bars to the right and pump the clutch lever.
If the problem is trapped air there it will be flushed back to the master cylinder and the lever pull should firm up.

Yes another hearty welcome to the forum robcath

You will have to clean the master cylinder and the slave cyl too. After cleaning the master you will need to bench bleed it to remove air in the master, then bleed the system.

In the repair manual there are instructions to clean/rebuild. Might be some in the GW workshop section under menu and also in the reference and FAQs forum pages.

Goldwingdocs.com has a good selection of how to do's.

Rob,
Before you take it apart beware. Lots of people have trouble bleeding the clutch on those bikes. The problem is the master cylinder is not the highest point and air gets trapped by the banjo fitting. Try this. Put the bike on the center stand and even tip it ever so slightly to the right if you can do that safely. Next turn the handlebars all the way to the right. Now you have the master at it's highest point and it will bleed. That problem has driven myself and many others crazy before. Good luck.
