Just got my new to me bike home and seems like the hydraulic clutch has gone out between the time I loaded it on trailer and went to unload it.
Dirty fluid inreservoir and low so I sucked that out and replaced.


Still nothing, went to bleeder on slave and pulled out a little fluid and air (vac bleeder)- level went down a little, continued pulling out steady stream of air bubbles, no further change in level.
Did this for probably 10 min., getting slight resistance at lever (about last 1" of travel) and can hear a "rushing" noise.

Does the steady stream of bubbles wo/ change in level mean I need slave cylinder rebuilt?
OR: Should I go back a step or 2 and try to bleed master cyl at the banjo bolt?

Thanks

PS: What's the small container that was in my way when I went to bleed slave cyl.?

Now that you have fluid coming out the bleed valve, pump the lever slow about 5 times, hold it in and crack the banjo bolt real quick. Do this 4 or 5 times and you should get your clutch back. I would run new fluid clear through the system. VERY IMPORTANT - wrap a rag around the banjo bolt so you do NOT spill fluid on anything, it will melt your fairing. The little tank you are talking about is a condensation overflow, just take it off and dump it every couple months or more if it's real humid. Paul

Thanks - that tank was past full and I wondered if it was coolant overflow or somthing.

If you are talking about the black plastic one by the left footpeg, it's just dirty water. Just take the hose off the top, the bolt out the side and pull it out. It's about the easiest thing you'll ever do on your bike.
