Question about Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder Motorcycles
You probably need to bleed the sytem. Might as well start with fresh fluid.
Get a syringe without the needle, draw the old fluid from reservoir.....then refill with new fluid from a new container (brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air). Sit the diaphram back on the reservoir so that as you pump lever...fluid doesn't squirt over the side...brake fluid will destroy paint and fairing plastic if not cleaned immediately with warm sudsy water...always have a pail handy when handling brake fluid.
Find the bleeder bolt on your clutch slave.....on Yamaha its under a rubber flap on left side...Suzuki might be different). Attach a hose to bleeder and route to a waste container.Pump the lever a few times and while holding lever partially in...crack bleeder and squeeze lever to force the old fluid out....close bleeder, release lever....repeat the bleeding until new clear bubble free fluid is exiting. Monitor the reservoir level as you push out the old fluid and replenish as needed...if you run it empty...you will be fighting to rid the air out for some time.
You want the reservoir level to be about 60% full so it can expand with engine heat, before reinstalling the lid when done.
