Clutch Fluid Drained During Storage
For the 2nd time in 3 years (Spring 2013 & this year), the clutch fluid in my '03 DL1000 completely drained during winter storage. Last time, I had the local shop pick the bike up & re-fill. This time I'd like to try fixing it myself.
First thing I have to do, obviously, is re-fill the line so I can at least start shifting gears. I did this on a previous bike with a service manual and help from a forum similar to this. For my V, however, I don't have a service manual.
Is such a repair possible without a manual? I have a vague idea of what do do - could someone talk me through the process?
The next step would be to find out why this happens and fix that. Maybe I need a manual.
Thanks in advance
