need to re route clutch line

I am installing the suburban machine type 2 barbacks on my 03 k1200gt. My bike already at one time had them installed I believe. The brake like and other lines are already extended. I went to put the left side on and the clutch line is routed between the left fork leg and the frame. I need to run it behind the triple clamp. Do I have to bleed the system or is there some way to do this without alot of work? This is my only battle on firring these on right now. The right side doesnt have problems. Any help?????

The clutch line can be disconnected easily at the master cylinder, but it's worth draining it first and making sure the fluid doesn't drop down on to the bike and paintwork. Presumably you'll have the tank off so you can get the routing right for you? Bleeding the clutch is easy peasy - not like the brakes, so don't worry about that.

I looked into extending my clutch line but hit a problem when I found the 'banjo' connector at the clutch slave (hard to get to) was 6mm and not a part sold by my brake line supplier.
