Question about 1985 kawasaki ZL 900 A1 Eliminator

1 Answer

I am rebuilding my master clutch cylinder for a 1985 Kawasaki Elinator 900. I have taken the parts out, but it was not easy to see exactly how the parts came out when it came to the spring and the rubber cap. The rubber cap has a nipple that appears to fit over the spring, but when I install it, it does not pump fluid.

Ok things that you will need to look at Frist there are two holes in the master cyl. make sure both are open a needle with help with this. i all see alot of people put the plunger in backwards. i wish i had more time to find the brake down for your bike but any will do because they all work the same. i'm going to give you site that will show the order of parts. after you have it apart you should hone the bore that will clean anything out and make it smooth. clean it will with contact cleaner and dry it good, DONT use carb spary!!!! after you get it put togerther right and if you still haven problems bleb it at the banjo bolt. this is gone by pumping it up and lossen the bolt make sure you hold the lever in till you have it tight or it will pull air back in. good luck my friend

Why would my hydroulic clutch not work sometimes? after letting a lil fluid out and squeezing the clutch itll work again for a while

It sounds like you have a leak somewhere, letting air into the system.

Start at one end (master cylinder, for example) and follow the entire system, looking for evidence of a leak.

Possibly, the master or slave cylinder might need rebuilding.

1985 Honda VF 1100 C clutch lever has no pressure

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. System contaminated with air that needs to be bled.
2. Damaged or contaminated master cylinder that needs a rebuild.
3. Loose, damaged, cracked, kinked, or pinched hydraulic line.
4. Damaged or contaminated slave cylinder.
5. Hydraulic fluid not compatible with rubber components.
6. Excessive heat builds up hydraulic line routed too close to the exhaust.

Leaking clutch master cylinder

replacing is easy, you could also buy recon kits and do it yourself. You will feel when it is getting dangerously low, the clutch will take a few pumps to work, good luck
