1993 Vulcan Clutch Issue
Picked up a 93 Vulcan classic a few months ago. 6800 miles, needed a little work, and best part... FREE! Just got her back from a local shop who re-did the carbs, new tires, salvaged the terribly rusted tank, and full service (fliuds, filters, etc). Runs great now and I'm looking forward to bobbing it next.
I don't know much about hydraulic clutches and had a question. It seems the clutch (line) builds pressure and doesn't engage the gears until almost fully released. I noticed the clutch slipping when laying on the gas a little. I opened the banjo bolt on the resevoir side a little and a small burst or fluid shot out. I tightened the bolt and the clutch performed fine (engaged the gears and no slippage).
Can anyone tell me if this is normal or how to fix it...
Thanks and I look forward to hearing back!!
