while replacing the front sprocket this morning, i noticed upon getting everything back together, the clutch has no feel. i made sure not to grab the lever while the slave was off of the clutch rod, but i think i may have accidentally grabbed it anyways at some point.

there are no leaks and the fluid is just below the low level in the master. when i press the piston on the clutch slave, fluid travels back to the reservoir. i'm guessing i just managed to pull air into the line, but i figured i would ask the pros before i bled the clutch.

thanks guys!

nevermind...must have gotten air in the system! done and fixed.
Same thing happened to me. Was careful not to engage the clutch during sprocket replacement on my Blackbird, and everything worked fine untill the following morning when I had no clutch pressure. A 2 minute air bleed job solved the problem. Even with all the precautions, a tiny bit of air had worked its way into the fluid, and believe me, it doesn´t take much air to completely disable the system.
