Book Excerpt: 2002-2008 Honda VTX1800 Series Repair Manual

CLUTCH AND EXTERNAL SHIFT MECHANISM

This chapter describes service procedures for the clutch and related components, the external shift mechanism, the primary drive and driven gear and the right crankcase cover.

Refer to Table 1 and Table 2 at the end of this chapter for clutch specifications.

CLUTCH BLEEDING

Brake fluid is not compressible and is used to transmit force within the clutch hydraulic system. As fluid is pushed out of the master cylinder, it forces the piston in the slave cylinder to move the pushrod and release the clutch.

If the clutch lever feels spongy and less responsive, there is probably air in the system. This results in increased clutch lever travel and clutch drag, which can cause transmission-shifting problems, especially in the lower gears.

When adding fluid during the bleeding process, use DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container. Do not reuse drained fluid or use DOT 5 (silicone-based) brake fluid.

DOT 4 brake fluid is glycol-based and absorbs moisture, which greatly reduces its ability to perform correctly. Purchase brake fluid in small containers and discard any small leftover quantities.

WARNING: Avoid contact with brake fluid. Wear safety glasses and rubber gloves when working on the clutch hydraulic system.

PRESSURE BLEEDING

This one-person procedure uses a pressure bleeding kit (Figure 1).

  1. Remove the left crankcase rear cover (Chapter Fifteen).

  2. Check that all of the clutch system banjo bolts (A, Figure 2, typical) are tight.

  3. Remove the dust cap from the bleed valve (B, Figure 2).

  4. Assemble the vacuum tool according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  5. Connect a wrench and the tool's hose to the bleed valve on the clutch slave cylinder (Figure 3).

Happy in Missouri
Just as i had hoped, the manual that i purchased has already helped me out so much. The truth is i have learned things about my bike, that i might not have ever known, had i not made the purchase of the manual. When i saw that someone had taken the time to hand write Thank you and draw a smilie face on packing slip, well that sealed the deal with me. I will be ordering from you guys again. Thank you so much, H. Williams, mo. USA
