He told me how to bleed clutch.
Use oil spray(scwirt?) bottle with flexible hose and pump fluid in small hole in master cylinder. Slave cyl. bleed valve should be open and clear hose attached.
About my 2 Wings with clutch problems he said to remove clutch from one and to rebuild master cyl. on another one. I better do it, he is coming tonight again...

I believe in the old addage, "the right tool for the right job". If you hav4e a Harbor Freight Tools store nearby the have most anything you would need to work on your bike. Download manuals online and follow them.

I think it will take a very small tube and a very careful hand to pump fluid into/thru thesmall hole in theMC.Be very carefull if you try this approach. It seems like it would be very easy to spray fluid out of the MC and onto other parts of the bike, and we all know how damaging that can be.The approach I use is the "reverse". I use a syringe to "suck" the fluid thru the bleed valve of the slavecylinder. It's a poor-man's approach to the more expensive vacuum devices that are often used. HTH

You can use a squeeze bottle and a hose to push fluid backward from the bleeder to the master cyl. with good results. Be careful not to let the reservoir run over though.

I completely agree. You can get a decent vacuum setup for about $30. I don't have time to do the "squeeze bottle" thing and risk spraying brake fluid all over everything, all in the name of saving a couple of bucks.
