Make sure the bleed screw on the slave cylinder is open and keep pumping until you notice the level going down

Your clutch plates have lasted 25 years. It is probably time to get some new plates. Have your dealer get you a set of Barnett clutch plates.

The most likely cause of your problem is electrical wiring shorting out underneath your left side cover. Pull the cover and check all the wiring, especially noting the condition the potting sealant (usually silicone) that should be sealing the wires going into the connectors, Ensure that none of the wiring is exposed. Check the tightness of all connectors. Check all visible component integrity, too. That should solve your problem.

There is a tool that is used, it looks like a steering wheel puller or flywheel puller. Loosen the nut, a strap tool is handing to hold the stator still while you loosen the nut. Then using the removal tool, you pull this off. reassemble by tighting the nut. You should be able to get a puller at autozone in the loan a tool program. I hope this helps

How to pre bleed the master cylinder on my 1996 honda accord 5 speed


there are different ways to bench bleed the master depending on the tools available to you... did you receive a fitting, with or without a port for a small hose, in the new master box? if not then you should make one or get one at the parts store. you need to put the master in a vice (from the mount, not the body) and fill it with fluid. this is where the fitting comes in handy, you are going slowly depress the piston about half way at first having the fluid that comes out the port directed back into the reservoir with a hose. keep the hose submerged. if a vice and fittings are not available, you can mount the master in the vehicle, connect the line and fill with fluid. disconnect the line from the slave cylinder and submerge it in a container. press the pedal by hand slowly. make sure the line stays submerged and the master is never run dry. if everything is kept clean, you can reuse the fluid from the catch container.

My problem is my front brake. I have to open the bleeder on it to release the pressure before i can ride it or it will lock up on me. Now is this the caliper or the master cylinder that needs replaced.


Do not despair, it is a relatively easy fix. Your brake master cylinder is dirty and plugged with rust. You will have to take apart and clean your brake master cylinder. Consider purchasing the rebuild kit and replacing all the rubber parts in the master cylinders and the caliper pistons. This will ensure you many trouble free years of operation in the future. If funds are tight a simple cleaning of the master cylinder reusing the old parts should suffice. When you rebuild your master cylinder you will need to look down the reservoir at the large brake fluid feeder hole. Right next to it is a tiny pin hole. That is the brake fluid return hole for the reservoir. It is probably plugged with rust or dirt. When it is plugged , you can drive a short distance and the wheel locks up. Open the bleeder screw to release a squirt of fluid and you can drive back home before it locks up again. Clean out the hole with a single straight bristle from a wire brush and see if that fixes the problem. You may not need to disassemble any thing to get the systems working properly but you will need to do a thorough bleeding to get all the rust and dirt out of the brake lines. This is a common problem on all older machines when the brake fluid is allowed to sit in the system for many years unchanged. Use only new DOT 3/4 brake fluid when refilling the reservoir.

1989 honda vt1100. the bike has no clutch feel. the lever is soft and wont disengage the clutch, master /slave works fine, i removed and held the slave from moving and the clutch lever was firm. the bike...


Hey End,
check out these components... one of them IS the problem.. make sure the system will pump fluid all the way to the bottom of the hose..THIS WILL REQUIRE TWO PEOPLE..and a can of fluid.. We are going to test the lever's ability to pressurize the hose...(This will help pinpoint the issue!!)..First.. remove the cover of the reservoir..(keep it level)...(DO NOT let the reservoir get low on fluid!!) one of you needs to remove the hose at the connection(#21 - master cyl. pic)..it will be leaking.. place your finger and thumb over the hose(prevent it from leaking).. have your helper fill the reservoir..now have your helper squeeze the lever.. see if you feel pressure on your finger and thumb..if not.. try putting the cover on the reservoir..and now try pumping the lever ...see if you get pressure at your finger and thumb.(it SHOULD blow fluid out!). IF THERE is NO pressure - no matter what you try..-- The problem is in the master cylinder.. (START from the BOTTOM pic first)..

The numbered pic's are the main culprits.. the problem is most likely in the master cylinder... -- then the clutch (#14 - #16) components...

PlEASE mark as helpful.... thanks

I have to let my clutch out far


Lets assume you have the hydraulic clutch. Now let's start by bleeding the clutch.
  • Put the handlebars in position to have the hydraulic cylinder as level as possible. Remove the reservoir cover and diaphragm. Don't let clutch fluid get on plastic or painted parts. The finish will be damaged. Add fluid to the line level on master cylinder casing.
  • Remove left rear crankcase cover.
  • Remove cap from the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder Put a box end wrench on the bleed valve then put a clear hose on the nipple and immerse the end of the hose in clean brake fluid.
  • Pump the clutch lever at moderate speed to eliminate air through the master cylinder. Tap the cylinder to release air clinging to the line. Do this until no more bubbles rise from the cylinder.
  • Now pump the lever several times and hold the lever in. Crack open the bleed valve and let fluid and air bubbles escape into the clear hose . Close the bleeder then release the lever slowly. Wait a few seconds then repeat the process until no more bubbles are coming from the bleeder. Keep an eye on the reservoir and add fluid as needed.
  • Remove the clear hose and put all parts back into position.
Let me know if this fixed the problem. If not we will go further.
