Yesterday I went to bleed the clutch on my 02 m750sie and as I was going to crack open the bleed valve it snapped off inside of the banjo bolt.

Anyone have the same problem?What did you do to fix it?

New banjo bleed bolt?
How do you get the old one out and not spill fluid all over the place?
Or is it inevitable that it spills?

Should I just get a new slave?
YoYodyne??Evo???

Suggesstions?

Thankyou in advance

I stopped by ducati on the way home.Got a new bleed bolt.Went to change it and for the life of me I couldnt get the slave off.

Bolts seem stuck or my allen keys suck.Tried wd-40 nada....tried brute strength- nada.Evenutally settled on just unscrewing the banjo and replacing it in its original spot.

After replacing I noticed a clutch fluid leak while bleeding.
There is fluid weeping from behing the slave...
Could be a number of things....

Anyways does anyone have any sugesstion on how to get this thing off?Maybe.... does it loosen clockwise instead of counter clock wise?

I dont know, I feel dumb trying to take this to a shop so they can break/strip the bolts so I dont have to worry about it and theyll just give me new ones.

Thx

Lefty loosey. Grab the allen wrench with an adjustable or a box end wrench for more leverage.
