Hydrolic failure is caused by mixing hydroscopic (DOT3) with petrolium based (DOT5) ater and oils don't mix. Blockage at return port won't allow fluid to return to master cylinder. Clutch will not engage if this were the case. The leak would be your best tell. Not knowing exact leak location it would be hard to say. inspection of master cylinder plunger seals couldn't hurt. If dissimular fluids have been mixed all rubber components have been contaminated and must be replaced

How to bleed clutch on 1994 Honda Shadow vt1100c


Unscrew the screw on the slave cylinder (it is under the plastic cover on the left back side of the engine), squeeze the clutch lever and the oil should come out at the screw center.
If you want to change the oil, open a master cylinder, suck the old oil out and re fell it with new one and go with procedure as described above.

My honda shadow vt1100c 1986 wont start because of no spark.starter will kick over but no spark to leads.can anyone help?


Weak battery, starter is taking too much power and nothing left for spark. Also, you have to fill up carburetors with gas if the bike was still for a while.

1993 VT 1100 C Shadow: Leaking oil on left side above kick stand...


Based off my experience today...which lasted several hours of researching this same issue on my 1993 Honda Shadow vt1100, it's most likely not oil but is rather fluid leaking out of the master cylinder that operates the clutch mechanism. I'm assuming you have a hydraulic clutch like mine. Directly above the kick stand is a metal plate that looks like it could be part of the engine but has an 8mm bolt holding it on at the bottom. Take that off and directly in front of you is your cylinder. You should inspect the lines and bleed the clutch lines to make sure that air isn't you issue. Beyond that you are where I am now.....did all that stuff but can't figure out my issue. Just thought I could catch you up at least that far and save you a little time.

HONDA VT1100 1987 CLUTCH DRAG


hello
sounds alot like the hydraulic clutch system may need to be bled and possibly the master cylinder cleaned. these clutches usually withstand alot. and considering the age of the bike. if the master cylinder for the clutch has not been gone through recently i would consider focusing efforts on it, and bleeding the system for any air that can cause the clutch not to disengage fully.

I need to bleed the clutch on my vt 700 shadow, 1986 model


My guess is that unless it leaked out, your master or slave cylinder is going out. But I assume you must have already checked the reservoir to see if it has any brake fluid in it. So crack open that bleeder valve down there at the slave cylinder and let it drip while you keep the res. full. When you stop seeing air bubbles, close the bleeder and top off fluid. Great Job!

Clutch bleeding


Try opening bleeder screw on slave cylinder and let it GRAVITY BLEED, just open clutch mater and fill with fluid and then open slave cylinder bleeder screw and let it gravity bleed( run out by itself) When it does close bleeder screw and you should get pressure.(make sure master doesn't run out of fluid during this preocess).If pedal not good enough bleed as usual. PUMP PEDAL ABOUT 6 time then hold down to the floor using wrench open slave bleed screw and close back up with pedal still being held DOWN. Repeat until fluid comes out with out air.However if all this doesn't work, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE CLUTCH MATER CYLINDER. Conatct if you need more help and Good Luck. Thanks for using FIX YA
