Re: clutch not working
I'll disagree with John on this one. Open the reservoir cap and see how much fluid is in there. Holding the lever down blocks the relief hole between the master cylinder and the pressure in the slave cylinder, so just make sure the hole isn't clogged and let it set overnight with the bars turned all the way to the right so the reservoir is the highest point in the system. If clogged, clear it with a small diameter wire. Then in the morning, gently and slowly work the lever and watch for air coming from the relief hole. Hopefully you'll see some and that'll cure it. Cover the hole with a quarter before you work the lever or fluid will shoot everywhere. If it's still soft you'll need to pull the right panel and try bleeding the clutch.
