Glad to hear she's finally running.
Bleeding a hydraulic clutch can be a bear. A vacuum bleeder if available would do it or putting fluid in a plastic bottle or large syringe with a hose attached and forcing fluid backwards up the line. Be careful to not get fluid on the plastic parts as it will destroy them.
There is a carb sync gauge loaner program in the reference & FAQ forum. Unless you have cleaned the carbs it probably won't help though.
Sorry, that should be the for sale forum for the tool loaner program.

If you check out some internet shopping sites, or your local dealer, you can get your very own 4-tube carb sync that includes the necessary honda adapters for less than a hundred dollars shipped.

Since the carb sync interval is every 8,000 miles, why not own one?

I have a MotionPro SyncPro.

Connect the hose to the bleeder screw, other end to the little bottle (hope you have that) on one side of the cap with a little hose that goes inside the bottle, connect the pump with another hose to the other side of the bottle, fill the master cyl. open the bleeder 1/4 turn and pump. Be sure to keep the reservoir filled while pumping.
Also don't let any brake fluid get into the vacuum pump as it will be instantly worthless.

Harbor Freight has a real good pump that works great, I had the same problem until I decided to pick one up. Hooked it up and had everything working great inabout5minutes. Just remember to monitor the fluid level in your resevoir, keep it filled while your pumping that old fluid out.

What exactly are the necessary Honda adapters. I am looking at adding this to my arsenol of motorycycle tools.

I believe hes refering to the 5mm adapters that screw into the intake tubes, so the hose for the vacuum gauges can be attached. I tried finding them locally at different auto stores and industrial supply houses no go. Had to get them at the dealer.,,

ok sorry for the moronic response! my mechanical knowledge is poor (i am a quick learner and have a nac for fixing things!) so anyway i get that the pump is to be attached to the bleeder screw (thats the one under the bike behind the rear brake peddle right?) and the vacuum pump does have a bottle on it (said on the packet it would bleed brakes) so i have one end in the screw hole and other to the bottle, but i dont get how i connect another hose to it? do i do this at the same time? i know i have to keep the reservoir topped up is it not as simple as pouring the fluid into the top of the reservoir as im pumping? gain sorry for the ridiculous questions!

thank you Ali:baffled:

This should clear things up...

Your bottle's cover should have 2 hose fitting attachmentson it for 2 hoses: connect one hose to the bleeder; and connect the otherhose to your vacuum pump.



Fill up the clutch reservoir on your handlebars, make sure that the hoses are still securely attached to the bottle and the pump and the bleeder screw. Then open up your bleeder and use your pump. Watch your bottle as it fills up for 'no more bubbles.' And this is important like others have said: Don't let the clutch master cylinder run out of fluid, or you'll have to do the whole procedure again.:waving:

Yes, the 5mm screw in adapters that take the place of the Phillips screws.

For those unfamiliar, your vacuum ports are "plugged" with Phillips screws. You remove the screws and replace them with metal screw-in tubes. These tubes can be fitted-over with the vacuum line from your sync tool.

Check out Motion-Pro. The SyncPro has the Honda Adapters included with it for under $100. Or the Honda adapters alone are available for less than $20 if you already have a Carb Sync tool or are making one home-made.

I saw the motion pro tool for $50 bucks one day and didnt think to snatch them. They are back up to $80.

with $100 you can get yourself the harbor freight vacuum bleeder and the synch tool.



The quote about damaging the poump is true. Mine is no good anymore because i was careless allowing fluid to enter the pump. NO MORE VACUUM.



You can also try speed bleeders . They work great on my brakes. You just open the bleeder a 1/4 turn and start pumping. The pressure will push the spring loaded mechanism inside the bleeder and force its way out, not allowing air or debris to retun into the hydraulic system.

One handed you can bleed the air out of keep bleeding till all your fluid is fresh and clean.
