Need your brain power on this…
As expected, my clutch slave cylinder failed. Due to my distance from the dealer, I’m repairing it.
(Note: I’ve years of experience working on motorcycles)
I replaced the slave cylinder with the updated OE part.
The problem is I cannot get it to bleed completely. I’ve tried both both it manually, and with a pressure bleeder. At times it appears I’ve got all the air out of the system, but there is still insufficient pressure to actuate the clutch rod.
I’m going slightly mad over this problem; any help you can give would be very appreciated.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I’m not familiar with the 701 yet, but on the 990 there was a little metal ball between the slave and the pushrod.</p>
This could easily be lost during removal / installation.
Maybe the 701 has the same design?
With regards to bleeding, you could try filling it from the bleed niple at the bottom with a large syringe.
