Question
How do I locate the clutch bleeder valve on a 1985 Honda 500cc Magna motorcycle? There are a couple of tubes extending 2" underneath the engine. Brake and clutch?

Answer
Hi Thomas,

If you have a VF500 the bleed screw should be on the slave cylinder
right in the open on the left side of the engine.

Not the best picture but you can enlarge it a bit to see where the
bleeder screw is hopefully.

Let me know if this looks like your engine or you need more info.
