Recently doing maintenance on a newly acquired 07 695.my clutch fluid was murky .
I performed a fluid change and was “ bleeding “ the little Be to get a good lever.
Before could , I completely lost all pressure.
I have completely removed and cleaned
The master, slave, all connections etc.
Still nothing? I have tried to use a mighty vac but seem to get almost endless air?
I have checked for leaks without success.
Any thoughts would be appreciated
Thanks

So if I understand, you lost all pressure to the hydraulic clutch circuit while bleeding the system? Or was this before you bled the system?

If it was before, check the master cylinder, there is a small rubber boot at the end of the piston that can split. Someone on another group I'm in had this happen to him, it was on the clutch side as well so possibly the same thing. I would have posted pictures but I can't retrace which group it was in.

I you lost pressure after trying to bleed the system, maybe try a pressure bleeder instead of a vacuum. Like this.


Good luck.

Thanks , my saga continues. I have replaced the clutch master 2 X ( with used ones) bled it at least 7 times ( I even bled it backwards from the slave) I have tried multiple versions of combinations of the parts. Is cap rubber boot etc...
This began “ while bleeding “ the clutch master following fluid change. I had pressure, but then lost everything in attempts to get it better!
I was unable to locate a new clutch master,
I have a new slave on order, but can’t shake the feeling that it’s the master.( no pressure) also no leaks anywhere?
Any advice is welcome, I need to ride!
Any advice on parts would be appreciated.
Thanks

Thanks, I had ordered one a week ago, still waiting. I was reluctant because I thought I would have had pressure at the master?
Does the slave just “ suck “ air when it’s bad? Thanks
