Just purchased a 1995 GL1500SE with a Lehman conversion. Clutch works fine, shifts cleanly, no creeping, just wanting to flush the clutch fluid (it really needs it) but cannot find the bleed nipple! Where it is supposed to be is a device which looks like some sort of a vacuum diaphragm. This has a black wire soldered to it and a red wire which appears to have been broken off it. It appears that this is attached to the bleeder pipe, but I cannot see for sure if that is true. Any ideas?? Also what is the smaller round device attached to the bracket with a cable tie? FWIW a CompuFire alternator has apparently been added. All donations gratefully accepted. Stan

That looks like an automotive style PO installed horn. Put your test lite on the red wire and push horn button, see if it lights for a quick confirmation as such if wiring is still intact.

Bleed screw is behind horn, remove lower alt bolt and toss horn for access.

Hey Stan,

First… Welcome to the forums! You’ll learn lots here. Take your time and enjoy the posts!

The bleeder nipple is under that “thing”… or at least should be. Please see the attached picture. That sorta looks like a horn or something like that. Either way it has to come off. It certainly is not stock. Who knows what a PO tried to do in the past.

I would remove it permanently as it is not working anyway with a broken wire. If you do, trace the wires back to their source and removed them properly.

Please let us know what it is and post a few pictures.

Good Luck

Tim.

Curious… What was the do-hicky thing-a-ma-bob attached with the wire tie?
