I have a vacuum bleeder, but need to understand the correct method for changing the fluid in a KTM hydraulic clutch actuator.
Thanks,
Mike

you are supposed to bleed it from the bottom up. I have used a big syringe and a tube. there is a bleed valve on the slave.

Thanks Carl. What should I do with the lever? Leave it out or tie up in the "in" position so the fluid flows?

I don't think you have to do anything with the lever.
There is a kit you can buy which has a threaded end which replaces the bleeder screw on the slave. But it is like 30 bucks or something. these are the instructions that come with the kit.
