As part of a few maintenance items today I flush the brakes and the clutch, all the fluids were a dark brown and the rear had nasty water sitting on the bottom of the reservoir. I use almost a qt of dot 4 fluid to make sure clean fluid was coming out. Had some trouble with the right caliper getting to flush. Anyways all is fresh clean fluid.

So much for every 12,000 miles or 24 months.
I bought this bike used last September of 18, and have been doing maintenance to give me a starting point moving forward.

I did my brake fluid change last month. Gonna tackle the clutch fluid next. Was it difficult?

It was pretty simple, just need to remove that front lower cover, remove that canister to get to the clutch bleeder valve.

If you search "GL1800 Clutch Bleeder" on YouTube, there's a good 2 minute video that shows you exactly where the clutch bleeder is. I just did mine today and it's pretty easy to get the canister out of the way to get to the bleeder.

Speed Bleeders are a blessing, worth every penny!
