I have no pressure on the cluth lever and assume the problem is related to a need to bleed the clutch - how do I do this?1

You will need a length of fuel pipe, 1/4" internal diameter about a foot long (ish) and an old yoghurt pot with some break fluid in it, to stop the air going back up the tube.
Crack and unscrew the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder one turn and place the pipe over it and down into a small amount of break fluid in the yoghurt pot.
remove the cover on the master cylinder and fill with fresh break fluid. pump the break/clutch whilst topping up. When fresh fluid is squirting out and no air in the system, tighten the bleed nipple.
There you are, an easy way to bleed your breaks and clutch.
The yoghurt pot doesn't matter, a standard clean plastic/glass container will do. I just like yoghurt straight from the fridge, so I have a lot of empty pots!

Just tightend my front sprocket ive put the cover back on now my cluth is slipping! but its a new clutch?

If it has a Clutch cable check the adjustment. It always need adjusting after putting in new clutch. If it has hydraulic clutch check and bleed the clutch fluid. If there is air in the lines this can cause a problem. Make sure you purchase a Service Manual it is a mechanics best friend.

Toque spec for clutch springs

You can play an adjustment with your spring,the best adjustment is when your bike does't have a running cluth situation, and once you press the cluth lever and release it you'll have power just like jumping .and thats it.

Cluth not working no prusher in cluth handle fluid good do you have to bleed it if so how

To bleed the hydraulic clutch actuator on your GL1200, follow the hydraulic hose from the master cylinder down to where it attaches to the engine. In this area you will find a bleeder valve just like the ones on the brake calipers. You will need an 8mm box-wrench (don't use an open end wrench), and a piece of tubing to slip on the bleeder valve in order to prevent hydraulic fluid from running onto the engine.

Make sure the master cylinder is to the "Full" mark with clean DOT3 brake fluid and then begin by pumping the clutch lever several times. While holding the clutch lever in, loosen the bleeder valve briefly, then re-close it. Do not release the clutch lever while the bleeder valve is open (doing so will draw air back into the system).

Repeat the above steps five or six times while also keeping the fluid level in the master cylinder topped off. If pressure within the system is not restored, then you will need to repair / rebuild the master and slave cylinders.

My cluth has no friction point. A couple of days ago after i brought the bike and was riding it was fine. And 2 days ago i feel a little different when i released teh cluth to find the friction point and...

I believe this has a hydraulic clutch. If this is the case it would appear either the master or slave cylinder are failing. Check the fluid level too as it may be low. I'd start the fix by bleeding this system first, if it continues I expect there is wear in the cylinders and you need to rebuild or replace.
I hope this may have helped,

I have a ktm 300 2008 modle i was riding it round then had no clatch do i need to bleed it?

hi mate when you pull the clutch lever in if it goes all the way in to your grip then it needs bleeding if it gets tight then you have a problem with your clutch itself also if bleed the clutch doesnt work then it could be your seals gone in the reservoir /the piston

Suzuki gsx600f clutch problem

if it is in gear for sure and it doesnt move even with the clutch engaged maybe you are missing a piece inside the clutch like the clutch boss spring. or possibly your plates are worn so much they wont hook up. or you are using a very poor grade of oil. Dont take my absolute word for all these solutions but these may lead to some problems like that.

Press the clutch lever in,  if it's soft it's still air bound and needs to be bleed.   Press the clutch in and it's hard but smooth, see if it's moving your cluth lever on the engine,  if not again try bleeding line till all air out. Press the clutch and everything external to engine is moving ,  you have internal clutch problems.
