What's your procedure for bleeding the clutch slave? You are pulling in the clutch while opening the bleed, then closing the bleed before you completely release the clutch, correct? Keeping the reservoir filled with fluid?
The other thing is to flick the clutch lever twenty or more times (pull completely back then let it flick back to open) to encourage the air bubbles to come to the reservoir.
The last thing, I hope didn't happen, is there is an actuator rod that fits behind that slave cylinder. I think there is a small chance of this falling out. But if you started in the engine, I would imagine it would have made the god awful worst sound in the world getting flung around by the clutch basket.
BTW, I merged the two threads into one.
'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda
