Never had a problem myself, but read somewhere on a forum someone had to use a power bleeder to get the job done on a Pathy.

You may have to take the clutch MC off and bench-bleed it to get the air out.

I depressed the clutch and held it down with a plunger cracked the bleeder until it stopped bubbling which seemed to do the trick.Appreciate the input.
