    Clutch bleeding ques.


    After I change the fluid in my clutch it seems like it takes no time at all to grunge up again. Am I not bleeding them properly? I am doing it like a set of brakes, is this the correct way? Or is this normal? All of my older bikes had a cable this is a new one for me.

    Clutch bleeding ques.

    You're clutch fluid will darken quicker than the break fluid, 'cuz it gets much more use. However, darkness can also be a sign of moisture in the system too. If you're concerned about it, I'd say replace the fluid all together making sure ALL the old fluid has been completely bled through....

    Also make sure that the system is air tight. Like all the gaskets of whatever is there are not letting the air/moisture through. That would cause the fluid to break down.

    Actually, the moisture is a natural occurance from the constant heating & cooling of the fluid. Some moisture will always end up existing in the system, and as long as the fluid doesn't become too diluted it shouldn't hamper performance....

    They are made though, to be airtight. The tiniest amount of air in there could seriously degrade your system's abilities to function at it's full capacity......
