Question about 1997 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm
Hello i just changed my chain and sprockets and and now my clutch wont work i have tryed bleeding it and it seems to move the piston in and out ok when i pull it but it just doesnt work when on the bike please can any one help me ??
Sounds like there is air in the system, you need to bleed it properly in situ. 1, crack the bleed valve on the slave cylinder and leave the spanned attached.2, Depress the clutch lever fully then tighten the bleed valve then let the lever go.3, Check there is enough fluid in the reservoir then repeat, do not let the clutch lever go unless you close the slave cylinder bleed valve completely.4, Repeat 6-7times, this will ensure you have no air left in the system

Hi m8,, undo the clutch reservoir,put a few rags arround the tank ,leave the cap off, then undo the clutch piston housin, so in your hand the clutch piston,, pump the lever a few times till u see the piston move out,, dont over do it,, once the piston has moved out enuff, replace it back on the bike,, maybe a little harder putting the housin bolts bk in without pushing against the housing,, as u push it in ,u might get a bit of fluid pop out the reservoir,, top up clutch fluid if needed,, replace cap,, this should do it,cheers
