It is under the left engin cover. You have to remove the shifter and the footpeg or floorboard too. Then remove the 4 or 5 allen bolts and the cover will come right off. No oil or anything will leak when this cover is removed. You will see the clutch slave cylinder behind this cover. I found the best way to bleed the clutch is to fill the master and open the slave and let it drip for a while (gravity bleed) Do not let the cylinder at top run low while you are doing this. After a 10 minutes or so, tighten slave then refill cylinder and do the old pump and drain bleed a few times. I found that it works better with the cover installed on the cylinder when pumping to bleed clutch.

The clutch bleeder is behind the left engine cover, you will have to remove the left exhaust from the head and also the left front foot peg in order to get it off should be about 5 bolts holding engine cover on dont worry its just a cover no oil leakage from that side, then it will be down just above the frame, it will have clutch hose going to it.. to Bleed it remove cap on leftside handle bar make sure fluid level is 3/4 fulll hold clutch lever in then open valve, let air out then close valve release clutch lever, should fix if not repeat bleeding until you have good pressure on clutch lever, dont let fluild get to low . once pressure is good refill and put cap back on. put bike back togather and RIDE good luck

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp


TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

try this link http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/howto/122_0306_hydraulic_clutch_service/index.html read this fully if you are not accustom to bleeding procedures. do buy a new can of brake fluid . you can also try gravity bleeding which should work. With this procedure DO NOT operate the clutch lever while bleeding.To do this )1 - remove all fluid from the fluid reservoir. 2) Fill with fresh fluid and replace the cap LOOSELY, you just want to cover the reservoir from any contaminants but loose enough to allow air to enter. 3) find the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder and open slightly, enough to get a drip of fluid. catch the fluid as any spilt can be corrosive. 4) let the fluid drip continually and be sure to watch the fluid level in the reservoir, keep filling as level gets low. Don't allow the res to go empty as you will draw air into the system again. Any pause in the drip is when air is leaving the system. 5) once a steady drip is acheived and the fluid looks clean tighten the bleeder screw and make sure the reservoir level is full, tighten the res. cap. Give the clutch a try. you should feel the normal resistance .

Your bike has a hydraulic clutch with a master cylinder at the clutch lever. Remove the cap and I think you will see there is little or no fluid in the reservoir. You need to fill it up then bleed the system to remove air in the line. This is done the same a bleeding brakes on a car. If I recall correctly, the bolt that holds the hydraulic hose to the master cylinder acts as a bleeder for the cylinder and there will be a bleeder valve at the other end of the hose to bleed the hose and actuator. Many parts are available at the website below. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Is there gas? Is the petcock on? Are you getting gas to the carbs? Are you getting spark? If yes to all these then you may have timing issues.

assuming it was reinstalled properly....try the following. while bleeding the system, squeeze the clutch lever several times to pump up the system as normal; open the bleed screw while holding the clutch lever in and air or fluid comes out. instead of closing the bleed screw hold your finger over the bleed screw and pump up the clutch lever in the normal fashon and bleed by releasing your finger to let the air escape try this several times to see if your clutch comes back. I don't know why but this technique works sometimes...Mike...Make sure you always have plenty of fluid in the resivoir at all times
