I'm totally convinced reverse bleed is the best way. Suck the grungy fluid from the master reservoir, then push clean fluid from below.

For extra satisfaction, visually observe the black, grungy, foamy splooge coming up from the hydraulic line.

Suck out the reservoir again, fill with clean, and you're golden.
Agreed!

Appreciate the help and sentiments gents.

I checked out the Harbor Freight vacuum bleeder... nah. Check out this Ebay find:

Since they're here in SLC, Marty the seller agreed to let me pick up locally. It's a perfect little kit with everything necessary. Off the reverse bleed the clutch!

110 is pushing it.... she is one thirsty bike! I actually bought this bike brand new in 2007 and rode it for year and a half and sold it to my friend, it has been sitting since and told me to take it with me... so we are reunited. I may have to add an oversized tank or carry some bottles. When I bought it there was no options for tanks, it was one of the first batch in the country.

Getting out of Vernal for a day or two. Anyone in SLC or St. George feel like grabbing a beer at some point, give me a shout.

Edit: Edit: Change of plans: SLC sometime this afternoon. Catch the Stars' game at 8. Then south to St. George tomorrow.

Well, the weather on both ends was great but Strawberry is still Frozen. Had to stop at the lodge to thaw out my hands. Made it to Honda World early enough they were able to handle the recall that's out on the 500x. Swapped a couple of bolts, easy enough.

At the Puck watching a so far unimpressive game. First round on me if any of y'all can distract me from the carnage.

I know this isn't KTM LC4 maintenance and tips/tricks thread but you guys were great with my plea for help earlier, so heads up, the homebrew and whiskey offer still stands! Because...

...I completely failed at reverse bleeding the clutch tonight. Steps I took with my syringe kit:

- took off the top and gasket of master cylinder
- loosened bleed screw at the bottom after taking off the little oil cap
- attached hose over bleed screw and filled syringe with mineral oil

I could not push the oil into the hose. I yanked on the clutch cable from all sides, felt that it was free and not being pinched, but there is a lot of pressure buildup and I could not get any fluid in. The little I was able to force in with maximum squeezing power is easily dispelled by one pull of the clutch lever.

I don't know what to do at this point. I did not detect any leaks in the cable either. It's a braided line and seems really sturdy. Tragic.

It sounds like like bleeding screw you were trying to push through was not lose enough.

Loosen up the clutch lever adjustment screw and oil should flow free

Haven't done the LC4 clutch bleed ...... yet.....but if you pull the clutch in, it will relieve the pressure buildup on my GS. fano's idea seems like a similar approach.....let us know what works cause that's on my list as well.

I'll be in the University area tomorrow afternoon if that's a timeframe for experimenting..........

Try just sucking it through with the syringe while you keep the reservoir full.
