Went for a ride last week and noticed that the clutch lever seem to pull closer to the handlebar than usual before releasing ,looked at fluid level and it was not low(and dirty) so I thought I would put in new fluid.
Used my Mighty vac to change the fluid and now I can't get it to pump any pressure(I put in a new kit in the master cylinder)I can hold my finger over the line out of the master cyl and there seems to be pressure there.
When I hook my vac to the bleeder there seems to be a lot of bubbles but I have emptied the vac canister 2 times,looks to me that would be enough to eliminate any air,my ST1100 has the same system and the clutch starts to release as soon as you start pulling it in.DO the slave cylinder's ever quit?The bike has 72k on it.Thanks

Keep in mind that it could be a failure with the clutch itself. Of course eliminate all else first. Good Luck

to see if there is pressure beyond the master cyl just use a pipe clamp and clamp the pipe the leaver should be solid

Thanks for all the reply's but this AM I found some hints on this site that led me to bleeding the MAster Cyl and tap on it ,when I did this (bubbles came out)it did bleed like it was supposed to,perhaps I did not NEED to rebuild the MC after all.:weightlifter:
