i have a '97 Kawasaki 1500 Vulcan Classic, about 4,000 miles (i know, i haven't ridden it much).
i never did anything with the clutch until this year when i bled and put all new fluid in. Clutch worked great after i did it, but the next day the clutch was slipping a bit. After a short ride, the clutch would barely engage at all and i barely got home.
So i bled it again. Clutch worked great, and went out for a short ride. No problems.
Then i rode it again the next day with a bit of slippage at the start and slowly progressed to almost complete slippage. Almost didn't make it back home again.
So, every time i bleed it, it acts as if it is great, but after some time, it fails on me.
Am i just not getting all of the air out? Why would the clutch system work great right after the bleeding and then progressively get worse after a time period?
