    i just replaced one in a fullsize over the weekend for a buddy. you install everything dry. (if replacing the lines slave and master. you do need to bench bleed the master. than you install everything, than open bleeder on slave and let it gravity bleed. that should be all it needs!
    peace

    I back bleed clutchs, pump the fluid through the slave cylinder untill the resevoir starts to fill. top off the resevoir and yer done.
    A Phenoix injector is nice but a regular brake fluid pump works too.
    That is by far the quickest method.

    i heard its a pain, i might be replaceing my Cluch slave valve thing, its all wet around it where it bolts to the bellhouseing, damn at 52$ for a new one. im gunna start soaking that bottom bolt at the slave valve just for fun so if i need to take it off it dosnt break off or somthing, but it does sound like a pain. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    You can pressure bleed it. Get a chunk of bike innertube and put it around the fluid reservoir after you fill it. Crack the bleeder and pressurize the innertube with compressed air. Just dont run it out of fluid and it works great.
