    Weird clutch problem since oil change

    Hi everyone. I've scoured the forum, found some interesting info but nothing specific to my problem. The backstory......vmax 2001my. Bought the bike from a friend in November last year. I knew it had idling problems as it had been sat for a bout 6 months. So I stripped the carbs and serviced...

    bleed the clutch or rebuild

    I was trying to bleed my clutch and I was doing it for like an hour, and got no lever at all, fluid was coming out but not a lot like no pressure really. I was wondering if I should try to clean it or just rebuild it

    What would cause fuel to pour out of the main air jet bleed?

    I recently shotgunned the carbs, pulled and cleaned pilot air jet 1 and pilot air jet 2 on all four carbs, and replaced the idle mixture screw assembly (screw, spring, washer, o-ring) on all four carbs (a couple of the originals had a little corrosion on the outside, so I replaced all four)...

    Front brake won't bleed

    My daughter bought me brake pads for my bike. I've been riding without front brakes since I had a leak from my reservoir so I had Sean rebuild it when I sent it to him cause the screw hole was stripped. So I put the pads on and put fluid in and I'm trying to bleed it and it just WON'T pump up! I...

    Bleed Brakes - Process?

    Thanks for looking in - Installed new pads and not sure how to bleed brakes?! Doesn't seem to work like my car - I tried pushing and hold brake down, open bleeder w/ tube in fluid, tightend bleeder -- but nothing really happening. I tried pumping brake and old fluid and a good bit of air did...

    Bleed screw cover help...

    Awhile back I got help identifying the clutch bleed screw and was told that there was normally a cover over it. Today I finally paid the ridiculous price of $21.00 for the screw and rubber cover (they don't sell just the cover). I can't figure out how this should go on. It looks simple but...

    Fuel line Air bleed valve.

    My carbs require the flue line to be routed down low between the cylinders close to where the oil breather is. This creates a high spot where air gets trapped in my fuel system. Iv removed the air before but its a pain in the ass preventing fuel from spraying all over uncontrolled. Can anyone...

    Using a syringe to bleed

    I heard of this a long time ago and decided to buy one last week. I tried it on the rear first. All the old fluid was removed, the master cylinder was torn apart and cleaned up. Basically it was like a new system, clean hoses, empty reservoir, master, and caliper. The syringe was filled with...

    clutch bleeding problem

    I just bled my front brakes (the fluid looked real old) and then went on to the clutch. Undid the master reservoir screws, sucked out most of the old stuff with a syringe, topped it up with fresh fluid. Then loosened the bleed screw on the slave cylinder and pulled the clutch lever - old dirty...
