    Loss of clutch fluid and lack of clutch

    In the 1500 miles I've done since I bought my bike in December I've topped my clutch resovouir up twice and on the last 2 rides the feel of my clutch lever has gone from feeling resistance from full to about half inch from grips and biting point been about 1/2 cm of the grips ! It's still got fluid in resovouir but it needs sorting as I can't use it like this ! Has anyone got any ideas on what it is and what the fix would be ?? :/ cheers

    Ive bought a good clean 2nd hand one to get me by for now but the problem is bleeding the thing. Ive tryed to do the pump leaver and crack the bleed nipple way and took ages to do but lever feels good but isnt working when I put into gear when engine is running, ive borrowed a sryinge and need to get some pipe to fit over bleed nipple to bleed it that way but for over night ive took resovouir cap off and tied the clutch leaver in to the bars as ive been told that works Anyone know if this might work ??

    I don't know, I've never done it. I just used the syringe, much better than trying to pump it through, esp when full of air.
    Thanks from BMcD
