VOR (Magura) clutch bleeding info?

Could you all provide some suggestions on how to bleed the Magura clutch system on my VOR 530? I've been messing with this for quite some time with no luck.

I'm familiar with bleeding brakes, I'm doing the same for the clutch with no luck. I've even tried laying the bike on the left side, remove the MCyl from the bar so that it's level and lower than the slave Cyl. Still no luck, even tried the vacuum brake bleeder, no good.

Here's the symptoms: Initially, after a lowside, it would work fine when cool, but be a problem when the bike was warm. I tried bleeding it for good measure, Now what happens is that as I let the pressure out of the slave cyl, then close the bleeder screw and then release the clutch lever, I have no pressure at all. If I wait a minute, then the pressure comes back. Seems like an air bubble, I guess. I've run around 8 oz of fluid through and it's not any better.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.


try leaving it with the m/c at the top overnight and then push the piston back in and let the fluid re enter the reservior. the air may have made it's way to the inlet and the reverse push will see the air back into the m/c chamber.

also make sure the little hole is clear in the m/c of silt. you can normally see the piston through the hole moving too and fro.



I've also heard of problems with old fluid, the clutch works for a short time then wont work, when new fluid is used everything comes back.

Check out Magura they have .pdf files for the procedure. The deal is you have to push the fluid from the bottom with a syringe.

The other thing is that the M/C could need a new piston and give a hard lever after you bleed it then suck air after a few applications, leaving you thinking it is your clutch that is bad. :)

      Howdy Everyone

      Today I am looking to sell my 2004 suzuki bandit 1200s for 2200 OBO. I have owned this for over 3 years and it was my daily the whole time. Yes, every day rain or shine. It never let me down and has been the best to me. I love it to death, but now that I have graduated with a big boy job that involves lots of travel. It is time to move on to something newer and more economical. It has loads of mods and general maintance parts to help it have a great life with me and continue on with it's next owner. Current real mileage is around 30k and the title is clear in MY NAME. 

      Videos of start up and just it idling 
      It was well maintained. 
      Valve adjustments done early (will include special adjustment tool with sale)
      Holshot Stage 1 jet kit
      Holshot Ignition Advance
      Holshot Slip on
      New chain and sprockets
      New Spark plug
      New airfilter
      Renthal Handle Bar
      Shorty Levers
      Upgraded windscreen (great for long trips)
      Suspension Adjusted and dialed in properly
      Price is flexible 
      Mileage is exempt (the speed sensor was broken when I first got it so it didn't record mileage until recently. Everything is now working properly)
      Has been down before (damage shown in pictures)
      Some other cosmetic issues from being used every day (general chips from rocks and small stuff you can't see in pictures)
      Windshield vibrates due to height 
      Exhaust rattles a bit (will include new muffler mount bushing to fix this) 
      I'm sure I'm missing plenty of stuff but this should be a great start on what this vehicle has to offer. If you have any other questions or would like more pictures, videos, details on anything please let me know. I'll be happy to work with you.
      At this time I am only looking at cash offers for the bike. No payments, sorry. Also I must note that no joyrides either. You bring the cash in full and I will let you test drive. You hold the title, I hold the cash. You drop it no harm done, because you keep the bike and I keep the cash. 
      At the time of sale you and I will sign the title and we will fill out the proper paperwork for the transfer of the vehicle on the spot. Sorry, but I Have been burned in the past. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy what you see.
      The best way to contact me is by phone. I'm not on this forum much, but feel free to text or call away and I would be glad to respond to any questions you might have. Thanks,
