If no fluid loss,then i would squeeze the fluid line (rubber part) to the slave cylinder. If you now have pressure in the pedal replace the slave cylinder. If still no pressure then change the clutch master cylinder.

SOURCE: chain broke on suzuki tl1000r, jammed into front

I am not familiar with your set up but what you describe is very common.The bad news is you have probably bent your clutch push rod and have broken your crankcase. Which means complete disassembly of the motor and weld the case or replace the case. Perhaps an ebay or salvage motor with a good case? Good luck you have your work cut out for you.

SOURCE: My 2004 Suzuki Marauder is leaking red fluid on

I'm having a similar issue with my 2003 Marauder. I now believe it's coming from the fork suspension. The red fluid is inconsistent with the color of brake fluid. The brake fluid in my bike is tan in color where as the leaking fluid is red in color.

I also do not believe it is any other fluid since the leak is only at the front wheel. Thus, it can not be transmission fluid, oil, radiator coolant or anything else. I'll reply to this posting when I completely resolve the issue

My 2004 Suzuki Marauder is leaking red fluid on the front wheel. Any idea what it could be?

If the leak is actually on the wheel, It's brake fluid, If it coming from anywhere else and leaking onto the outside of the wheel, it can be either the trasmission fluid, oil, or antifreeze.

If the parking brake is not on, then it means there's an issue with your braking system. Low fluid, faulty parking brake switch / sensor, leak in your brake line...

2002 suzuki grand vitara brake warning goes on and off

Do you have a brake fluid accumulator(ABS)? If yes, the pistons/pulsing assembly are worn, and may need to be replaced.

If not, you may have a vacuum leak in the power booster (located on the firewall). Check all hose and clamps for a tight fit/cracks,etc. Vacuum leaks cause intermittent brake failure lights.

You may want to park the vehicle on a clean surface, pump the brakes a few times, and check for brake fluid leaks. If there is a leaking wheel cylinder (back brakes) , caliper (front brakes), or brake line, you will be able to see it.

Leaks cause pressure loss, and, thus, the brake warning light will illuminate.

Rear end leak (not brake fluid)


Check your shocker, sounds like the leak could be from there ?
