    Clutch adjustment
    « on: 2018-02-10 10:15:08 »
    Anyone in UK know where can I buy the special bleeding nipple for the clutch?

    Is it only available from Bmw?

    Will an overful clutch tank lead to clutch biting close to end of letting go?

    Bike has only 23k miles and recently serviced.

      I'm not surd if there is anything special about the bleeding screw. Looks like a standard one. If you know the size you can probably get it anywhere.
      But if your bike is recently serviced why would you want to bleed the clutch yourself?

        It could be your clutch throw-out bearing going out?
