    To be fair I’ve tried both ways I cannot get fluid in or out of the master cylinder now I’ve tried pushin it up with lever in and out and tried sucking it back through as well I’ve got most of the dirty fluid back out now but it will not suck any clean down ether 😤

    Guys i need help with bleeding the clutch i can not get any pressure via the bleed nipple clutch end After changing the bleed nipple and banjo nut and copper washers, originally i just want to replace the clutch fluid after inspection it was filthy and bleed nipple rusted solid is there a secret way of bleeding the clutch i ve even opened the bleed nipple tube in a bottle and left it open for a couple of hours to see it it would run through with gravity thanks

    Beta Rev3 2006

    Having had the bike a couple of days now just going through the fluid levels and replacing etc and general check over before first ride out I’ve noticed the bottom shock bush swinging arm mounting end is slightly worn are these easy enough to replace ?? also on the Master cyclinder and clutch cyclinder the rubber boots are worn where is the best place to order replacement parts from around Durham or online ?? thanks
