k1200gt clutch bleeding process.

Does anyone have a good step by step guide to bleeding the clutch on a k12/13gt? I just replaced the clutch, and it runs great but I figure I should show the fluid some attention. Is the bleed screw that tiny little one on the outside of the slave cylinder? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Re: k1200gt clutch bleeding process.

The BMW manual has you remove the grub screw and install a bleeder on the slave. It then has you connect a syringe to the bleeder and suck the old fluid out (open the reservoir cover). Next you use that same syringe to back fill the slave until the handle bar reservoir is full. This one uses mineral oil not DOT 4 brake fluid.
