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!

How do i bleed the master cylinder on an 02 lancer

Check the slave cylinder on the transmission for leaks, and replace if it is. Bleeding:
1. put fluid in the master reservoir.
2. move the slave actuator shaft so the clutch release lever has not slack.
3. Have someone press the clutch pedal, and crack the slave bleed nipple to let out the air.

Once the slave moves the release lever, you'll be able to decide if the clutch is OK or not.

I have a 1995 katana and i shift to first and instantly dies how do i fix that?

Sounds like it has a problem with the clutch or clutch adjustment not not fully disengaging.
1. If it is a cable type clutch, unlock the thumb nut and tighten the clutch adjusting screw located on the clutch handle until it has about an 1/8 inch space(while squeezing the lever and just before pressure is felt) between the clutch lever and the bracket the holds it.
2. If it is a hydraulic type clutch there is no adjustment. In either case the clutch lever should have pressure on it almost immediately when you squeeze it. If very little or no pressure is felt and it is a hydraulic clutch, it may need bleeding or it has a bad master cylinder or slave cylinder.

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.

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.

1999 1400 intruder does'nt have any pressure when engaged.

Maybe, and maybe not. If it is a problem with the master cylinder, then it could be bleeding back into the reservoir.

If it will not pump up and pressurize, and there are no signs of a leak, then you need to look at the master cylinder.

No pressure on cluth pedal

You have air in the system, Keep the reservoir full, attach a hose to the bleed screw the other end of the hose in a small clean jar. Open the bleed screw, push the clutch pedal to the floor, close the bleed screw, repeat over and over till you are getting fluid and NO bubbles. do not reuse the brake fluid. When the bubbles are gone your clutch will work.

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.
