Same as the brakes..........

Everyone gets way too fancy with this bleeding stuff.
Fill clutch reservoir.
Put a CLEAR tube on the valve to drain the fluid into a container.
Put a wrench on the valve.
Slowly pull in clutch.
Open the valve until near ending of the clutch travel.
Close valve.
Release clutch.

Repeat until there are no air bubbles in the tube.
(The clutch will firm-up when it's right.)

I tried bleeding mine like brakes, but it never seemed to get there.

Instead, I just left the reservior cover off and just pumped the handle like crazy and the air all just slowly bubbled up into the reservior. I had to tap on the master cyclinder and slave cylinder an shake the line a little to get all the air out.

I also have heard good things about those Mity Vacs. One friend said he bled it out in a couple of minutes on his RC.

i bought a hand vacuum bleeder just to make bleeding brake/clutch easier. plus its going to save alot of time when i do my fluid flush again. and brakes and clutch bleeds are the same.

Think smarter not harder - what's the easiest way to bleed your brake lines? Speed Bleeders, why of course. What's the easiest way to bleed your clutch line? Speed Bleeders, naturally. It's the same pt # used on the rear brake. Trust me, once you use these little jewels you'd never own a bike without them. Truly a one person affair.

Cheers

Speed bleeders rule! I like the MityVac to get things going if the line was completely drained, like when installing new lines. After using it to get the lines primed, you'll still need to do the traditional bleeding as described by clutchslip.
