Clutch questions

Noticed clutch fluid was getting close to the low line so decided to change it out. Bought the Barnett kit pads/plates/springs. Installed em and now the clutch lever goes all the way in with no resistance. I'm guessing I need to bleed the master/slave cylinders but didn't think I would have to since I didn't do anything to that side of the clutch. Fluid was changed less than a year ago and is still clean. Had the manual and the jugger spring is in, right back plate just no clutch action. Any ideas other than bleed the hydraulics side of the clutch system?

Since it was already near low level, perhaps, when you remove the clutch's pressure plate, the slave cylinder's piston expanded a bit more and the master cylinder sucked an air bubble in.

Although the proper handling would be to bleed the system thoroughly, you could try this as a quick fix.

Open the master's container, remove the slave from the engine and slowly push the piston all the way in.
Mount the slave back on the engine again, fill the master's container to the correct level and try it out.

Air at the top banjo was the problem. Bleed the system and still nothing. The loosened the top banjo and pulled clutch and air came out. Did that a few times till it was just fluid. Now the clutch basket moves.
