Question about 1996 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder
If replacing master or slave, bench bleed the new unit prior to installation.
If just bleeding air out after routine service, apply lever a few times, hold in squeezed position, and open bleeder valve to release air/fluid for a second or two. Close bleeder before releasing clutch lever, or else air will be sucked in, not bled out. Start bleeding closest to the reservoir, working down through each connection or bleeder vavle, finally bleeding the last air out of lowest point near clutch slave. It's just like bleeding hydraulic brakes, except completion can be Much more time-consuming. If necessary, apply slight vacuum to lowest (opened) bleeder, while keeping res. full of fluid.
Once fluid flows or drips with no air present, your sys. is bled. CLose bleeder, and top off fluid. Let me know if these notes are not clear, or if you have additional questions. Thanks, TT
