I need to replace the clutch hose on my '94 1500SE. Has anyone had any experience in doing this?

It's not that complicated to do.

There's 3 bent tabs that hold the hose against the frame plus the tab that bolts to the tripletree bracket.

Thetab under the gastank is an effer to get at.
There's a tab just to the left of the carbs, so your airbox will need to come off(yeah so the seat, and airbox cover come off too, so now's a good time to change your air filter)
And there's a tab on the leftside of the fairing also on the frame of course.

And once you're done, you'll be bleeding the system with a vacuum bleeder. Using a vacuum bleeder is a must.

Basically the hose(mostly metal tube by the way) is routed on the inner edge of the square frame(so it's out of sight and won't be damaged on a laydown) and over the alternator (under the gastank) and then loops downward into the slave cylinder on the engine rear.



But if you're doing this, go for stainless steel lines. And if I were you, I'd clean out the slave cylinder while you're at it (it might just be your problem).
