Clutch and Brake Bleeding
« on: March 25, 2019, 01:57:58 pm »
Over the winter, my clutch was getting pretty 'grabby' when the engine was cold. I got it up on the center stand this weekend and good Lord, that was some dirty fluid! The front and rear brakes were good, but it was obviously time for some new fluid. Once I got it all cleared up, it was time for a test run around the lake! SO MUCH BETTER!!!!

That's next on my "to do list".  Hopefully this weekend I'll have some time.  Did you use speed bleeders or just do it the old fashioned way?

Did it the old fashioned way. Speed bleeders are on my to-do list as well.
