I am new to riding and purchased a 84 goldwing 1200a. The bike runs great and all but after about riding 40 -50 miles the clutch stops working. I can pull over and let the bike set off for 5 to 10 mins and the clutch is ready to go again. I have tried tieing the clutch handle back for 24 hours to get out any air bubbles but it didnt seem to help. Any suggestions?

It could be there is water in the fluid. Brake fluid is hydroscopic by design, which means it absorbs any moisture to prevent that same moisture from eroding brake parts. But that means that over time the fluid loses it's ability to function correctly, especially at higher temps. I would say flush it and fill/bleed with good quality DOT 4.

bleed and add new fluid. the slave cylinder is located rear the engine, you access from the left side of the bike, removing the black container using a 10mm socket, and you will have easy access to the bleeder.
