Cheers guys.

Keefy - there's plenty of fluid in the master cylinder. I'm gonna follow your procedure at the weekend, but I've never dealt with a hydraulic clutch before - surely there must be something I need to do lower down in the system to bleed the old fluid thru (I'm trying to relate this to the many times I've bled brakes)?

Interesting design 'quirk' to sight the slave cylinder exactly where it's going to be subject to most heat??

No new fluid required,just get rid of the bubbles and it'll be ok.Like I said before,some bikes need a regular bleed,some dont.My 999 bip needed doing once in a while while my 'S' has'nt been touched.

col it's the same as a disc brake on a car, just one bleed nipple and dot 5 not dot 3, just watch the fluid when you open the master cylinder and out of the bleed nipple, just put a pipe on the bleed nipple and a ring spanner undo the nipple pump the lever once do the pipple up and let the lever out and repeat, that way the air wont go back when you let the lever go,
takes two people but thats the way I bleed the bikes and cars I've done,

Mood: Replacing 999...
Sorry to ask a daft question but looking at my clutch fluid it has seperated into two different colours so I assume it needs replacing - it is also difficult to pull in the lever, even harer to find neutral! Is the procedure similar?

OBVIOUSLY REMEMBER THIS

749/999 Master Cylinders have to be bled at both ends - the bleed nipple at the top end (MC end) is actually IN the reservoir itself - its a 6mm hex head bolt!!!
