I just had to bleed my slave cylinder on the clutch. How about Mother Honda thinking about where they put things that are going to require regular attention.

I could barely get my hand into the area for the bleeder and then couldn't get more that just a little movement on a wrench to brake it open.

I believe Honda makes these Wings so they will be too dificult on some things so that some will have to take it back to Honda after the warrranty runs out. Some or Most Honda dealers will not work on a Goldwing over 10 years old. At least that's that the way it is here in Gadsden, Alabama.

Some things are difficult to get to for sure but it's hard to believe that they can get an engine with that many ccs in the area that they do and also have all the accessories that they have.

I used a socket and a couple of extensions and it wasn't to bad to bleed the clutch.

Same here. Small quarter inch drive ratchet and long extension made it easy. Sometimes it just pays to use the right tool for the job.

Looks like I've got to drill and tap for new screws in the clutch master cyl cover.

Do you know if there is a cover gasket in the rebuild kit.

Try taking a drummel and a cutting wheel and gently cutting a flat head slot in the existing screw head and before you try turning it put some PB Blaster on it. That's how I got one ofmine out.

I have a tendency to think the locationand access to those componentson our Goldwings are the nature of it's over-all design. Everything is so compact because of the limited space. That's one of the reason service tech's have to have special tools.
