The bleed valve on the GL 1200 is located on the clutch slave cylinder which is located on the rear of the engine. There should be a bleed valve fitting sticking up at the rear of the engine.

Bleeding clutch fluid


Have the bleed valve on the slave cylinder ready to open. When someone slowly depresses the clutch, open bleed valve and let fluid escape. Close valve when clutch is at bottom of travel. Repeat process till fluid comes out in a steady stream.

Hello,

You might try the following 1st:

1) Remove the dust cap from the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder.
2) Connect a clear tube to the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder - make sure you have a long enough length of tubing so that you can put a loop in the tubing higher than the bleed valve to prevent air from entering the system.
3) Place the other end of the tube into a clean container and fill the container with enough DOT 4 fluid to keep the end of the tube submerged.
4) Clean the top of the Clutch Master Cylinder and remove the screw holding the cover on. Remove the cover and the diaphragm.
5) Check the fluid level, and if low, fill the reservoir almost to the top line. Replace the diaphragm and cover and tighten the screws loosely.
6) Apply the Clutch Lever, slowly, several times and hold the lever in the applied position. Open the Bleed Valve and allow the Clutch Lever to compress completely. Tighten the Bleed Valve and release the Clutch Lever.

Repeat this step until all air bubbles are out of the system. NOTE: make sure to check the reservoir often to keep the fluid level full so air won't enter the system. When finished, make sure to keep the Clutch Lever pulled all the way in and tighten the bleed valve then replace the dust cap. If the lever still feels spongy, it will be necessary to repeat all the steps again until the Clutch Lever feels firm and gives the same feel each time it is applied.

Once you are finished bleeding the clutch system, make sure the fluid reservoir is full and tighten the screws on the cover. Do not apply too much force when tightening these screws as they have a tendency to strip.

Hope this helps. If you find this information useful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

How to bleed the clutch on a 1987 honda goldwing


Hello,

I did a search on Gold Wing problems and saw yours, unanswered for 2 months, and figured you have received your answer from somewhere else.

I will answer your question, just in case you haven't bled your clutch system yet. Just so you know, it is not necessary to bleed your clutch system unless your clutch feels spongy, you have had a leak somewhere in the system, you have had a component replaced, or you are changing the DOT 4 fluid.

1) Remove the dust cap from the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder.
2) Connect a clear tube to the bleed valve on the Clutch Slave Cylinder - make sure you have a long enough length of tubing so that you can put a loop in the tubing higher than the bleed valve to prevent air from entering the system.
3) Place the other end of the tube into a clean container and fill the container with enough DOT 4 fluid to keep the end of the tube submerged.
4) Clean the top of the Clutch Master Cylinder and remove the screw holding the cover on. Remove the cover and the diaphragm.
5) Check the fluid level, and if low, fill the reservoir almost to the top line. Replace the diaphragm and cover and tighten the screws loosely.
6) Apply the Clutch Lever, slowly, several times and hold the lever in the applied position. Open the Bleed Valve and allow the Clutch Lever to compress completely. Tighten the Bleed Valve and release the Clutch Lever.

Repeat this step until all air bubbles are out of the system. NOTE: make sure to check the reservoir often to keep the fluid level full so air won't enter the system. When finished, make sure to keep the Clutch Lever pulled all the way in and tighten the bleed valve then replace the dust cap. If the lever still feels spongy, it will be necessary to repeat all the steps again until the Clutch Lever feels firm and gives the same feel each time it is applied.

Once you are finished bleeding the clutch system, make sure the fluid reservoir is full and tighten the screws on the cover. Do not apply too much force when tightening these screws as they have a tendency to strip.

If you are changing the fluid, open the bleed valve and keep apply the clutch until no fluid exits the bleed valve. You will need to follow the above steps to refill the clutch system with fluid.

Oz

The clutch lever does not depress clutch so you can get in gear


Make sure the clutch fluid reservoir on the handlebar is full of dot3/4 brake fluid and bleed the clutch slave cylinder to get the air out. If you can not build pressure or lose pressure after bleeding, replace the seals in the master and slave and bleed again.

I have Bike BMW1300R and I need to change the CLUTCH tube (it is broken). I already did. Now I need to "bleed" the hydraulic system to take out the air. Where I make it in the Motorcycle?


follow your clutch line from the handlebar, to the engine. I have a picture of what you need to find, number 80 is the 'bleed' screw that you are looking for. Bleed the clutch system in the same way as you would bleed brakes, pumping the lever, and while holding it in, open the bleed screw to let the air out, the close it. Repeat this until you are happy with the way your clutch feels and works.

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.

How do i bleed my clutch system?


Fill your res. at the lever, leave the cover off. Don't squeeze the lever. Open the bleed valve down on the clutch till fluid runs out. Tighten it a little and add some fluid as it drains out. Close the bleed valve, refill the res. Barely reopen the bleed valve and let some more fluid seep out. Close the bleed valve and refill the res. Put the cap on, Go.

No there isn't any adjustment,and if you have good pedal pressure there isn't any point in trying to bleed the hydraulic system.
