Need Help Bleeding Clutch on 2007 990ADV

Hi!

I changed Clutch Slave O-Ring on my 2007 990ADV with 27,400 miles today and seem to be having a problem. I bled the system and cranked it up on the center stand and noticed that it seem to shift very hard into first gear. Not necessarily harder than some other motos I have had, but I am almost certain harder than it was before the O-Ring change and bleeding. Shifting into other gears with it on the center stand seems as smooth as always. How does y'alls moto do? What could I have done wrong? The clutch slave cylinder was operating perfectly before the change. I have gotten paranoid about the failures I have read about and since an Inmate sent me a bunch of o-rings, I decided to change the first one at home.

I am not interested in buying an after-market slave cylinder, I just want to adjust mine properly. If it is not already adjusted properly. I have bled many brake systems and clutches in past years without problems. Maybe there is nothing wrong, but I am concerned! Thanks!

Donnie

Ain't nothing wrong with the moto but the operator! I just did a short ride, it felt as smooth as ever! The first couple of times I let out on the clutch in first it seem to engage quicker than normal, but after that every thing was fine. Thanks to yellowbronco for sending me the o-rings. Now, if I have a problem on the road, I can fix it with no problem!

This is important, because I signed a contract a couple days ago to sell my house on or before August 28. I will be living on this moto. It is the only one I have! I still have some other things to PM and address during this next month. Including getting the front wheel and plastics replaced.

I also received and installed the fuel filters from Inmate gefr. They were dirty, especially the round filter. I had seen pictures, but did not realize how small that filter was. It was almost black! It will be a 20K or 25K mile PM in the future. The moto has 27,400 and was having no problem, but it could not have been much longer. I also washed some sediment out of the tank.

Get out of the garage and ride the damn thing. It's a great bike stock off the showroom floor.

I have already ridden over 20,000 miles this year! Most of that was to Mexico and on to Panama, plus over half was on a BMW. I am prepping myself, technically wise, to live on the road with this moto. That requires a different approach than day rides or even one/two week rides. I was very impressed with the 990 on the recent trip to Mexico! I can only hope it continues to deliver!

I would drill the swingarm holes...I bought a like new 2011 with 3K miles and have put another 4K on it. No deep water crossings, etc. Drilled the holes and found one side dry and the other drained maybe 1/8 cup of clear water.

Adding to your list...

Not sure if you have serviced any of your bearing sets on your wheels, swingarm or steering head yet.

I replaced my S/H bearings after 3 years. They would have lasted longer if I would have just serviced them sooner.

These tend to go out ( my theory is heat off the motor a standstill dries out the grease).

If you're replacing your front wheel and your hub is still good, add a rim off of a Super Enduro, buy a Eurpean spoke set from Warp 9, and bearing set from Moose Racing and you're good!

I plan to send the wheel to Woody's and they are going to put on a Excel 1.85" * 21" rim and superlace it. I had thought about having them replace the bearings.
