had this problem on my aspencade (1200-'87), first time spent two days bleeding using bleed nipple on rear of GB, got round it by using a domestic "spray trigger" out of a bottle of flash, fitted it on bleed nipple and it worked well, but my clutch lost pressure today, i read your post and tried the top banjo methode PERFECT, first time, no messing, and clutch is better (at lever)than last time, doing it this way is much much faster. thanks for the info

I can answer all general maintenance questions, also any general problem questions regarding most emergency problems as well as some uncommon problems regarding most motorcycles but with specific knowledge and experience with older Honda and Yamaha motorcycles. I am also very experienced in field analysis of problems and solutions to get the bike going till you reach a safe spot or home.


For starters, please don't call me Christopher. Chris or "Falcon" will do nicely. That said, I have been riding since 1981 and am licensed in the U.S. and in the UK for motorcycles as well as 3 other classes of vehicles. Since I began riding, I have owned 10 motorcycles of various makes and models, all but 3 of which have been older, second hand machines of questionable servicability. also, I ride 7 days a week, not 2. Rain or shine. but please do not ask me about specific parts and specifications regarding your bike. My expertise is in maintainence and field repair, not parts ordering. I will not be able to answer parts pricing and matching for specific machines. On a final note, I have recently discovered that a Honda V65 Magna will ford water up to nearly 2ft in depth. But you must keep the revs up and the speed down.
