I have a gixer 750f 1985, I had a clutch slave cylinder seal go, so I drained the clutch repaired the seal, on refilling the clutch I did it in reverse, I had a large hospital syringe put a small peace of fuel pipe on the end put the tube in the brake fluid filled up the syringe loosened the clutch nipple put the tube on the syringe on it and filled it that way, it takes a about 3or4 syringes full, when you fill the res. Leave the syringe on the nipple and slowly pump it back into the syringe, but don't let the res go dry, when you've pumped some back, fill it up with the syringe, but don't take the syringe off just pump the fluid back and forth until no air is being pushed out, then do up the nipple, and try the clutch leaver, pump it a few times and see if it works ok, I found this way take about 1to 2 hours, if i did it the way the book said it takes 1 to 2 days or that's what it seams like. Good like.

changing the clutch fluid in my 91 gixxer 1100. - daea339.jpg note: use an neoprene tube that fits on the clutch bleeder screw an a glass jar with other end of tube coverd in brake fluid so not to let air get back in system

Pump / release clutch slowly for not to spill out of res while bleeding/ flushing old fluid out

Keep the res full so not to let air in system by adding fresh fluid

I replaced the master cylinder for my 91 s10 now the clutch won't spring back how do I fix this


What master CLY did you replace clutch or brakes you have air in the slave CLY for the clutch system and you will have to bleed the system and make sure you don't run low on brake fluid while you are bleeding the system.

After changing transmission and clutch in 91 Wrangler, clutch goes to floor. Tried bleeding line but didn't work.


The clutch should go to the floor =) But if it's not disengaging the clutch disk, there's definitely a problem between the pedal and the clutch disk. I'm guessing you have a hydraulic clutch?

How to bleed my hydraulic clutch on my 1992 kawasaki zx11


similar to bleeding brakes, pump up the lever, then let the fluid out down at the slave cylnder at the bleed nipple.
May need to turn the bars or lean the bike so ther is no high point at the first banjo bolt on the clutch cylnder.
Its common for the slave cylnder seal to wear out, and this causes fluid loss and air back into the system

How do you bleed the clutch on a 91 saab 9000s?show where bleeders are


The bleeder is on the "slave" cylinder down at the clutch. Attach a hose to the bleed valve and route it into an acceptable container. You should have a "loop" so that the fluid has to travel "up and over" to the container. Open the bleed valve and have someone press and HOLD the clutch pedal down. Then close the bleed valve and release the pedal slowly. You should do this about 3 times and then check the fluid level in the master cylinder(at the firewall). In the picture below the bleed valve is at the top with the nipple for attaching a hose:

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.

Clutch master cylinder rebuilt, brand new clutch slave installed. Still can't get pressure to come up after bleeding on my 85 FJ1100. Original lines and seal on master cylinder cover. I'm at a loss here,...


Hi there,
Some times the clutch systems needs a vacuum
pump to bleed the system up to pressure. Also
note whilst bleeding the system don't let the reservoir run out of fluid. Also check if there is any other bleed nipples in this system. They all need bleeding.Hope this helps your problem.

Clutch problem?


ya used the wrong oil in the gear box, the clutch is slipping, to fix thhis it could be as easy as proper oil replacement in the gearbox or as bad as new clutches, the oil you use in a bike is VERY important as some cause clutches to slip and others to grab depending on the weight.
