Hi, My clutch does not engage, I thought it was low on fluid (and it was) so I bled the fluid and replaced and topped it up, but the clutch still won't engage !.
Any suggestions on what the issue could be ? Im not very mechanical, so please use small words !! :) :rolleyes:
Thanks !

How does the lever feel when you pull it in? Does it feel normal with 'resistance'?
When you bled the system, did the fluid pump through in a good solid stream and did you see a colour change as the new fluid came through?

What were the symptoms your bike was suffering from before you added fluid?
Have you ever cleaned the area around the front sprocket including the clutch push rod?

Apologies for more questions!

+1 on what the guys said!
Pull out the clutch SLAVE cylinder, that's the round bit that bolts on the sprocket cover.
Try pulling the clutch lever in and see if it moves the piston inside the lucth slave cylinder. Don't worry if it moves outwards, you can always push it back.
Also as the duck said, remove the sprocket cover too and inspect the area for dirt/grime/what have you.. It can make the clutch rod sticky and disable the clutch...
Good luck mate!
