I know allot of the RSV's have a problem with air in the boot for the master cylinder. Those guys poke a hole in it. I don't know if its the same on the Busas or not.

I don't own a busa, but I sat on three 2006's at the motorcycle show yesterday. My favorite was the white one, but I also liked the blue one. My CBR has a hydraulic clutch so I'm kinda familiar with 'em. Fluid isn't escaping, but air is getting in? How is the gasket on the master cylinder cover? How about the copper washers between the banjo fitting and the slave cylinder? Because it's so cheap, I would replace the bleeder. Maybe it was cranked down too much. If you have a speed-bleeder, I would replace it, I don't trust them.

Good suggestions... The banjo bolts should be a cheap PM/repair as well.

I have an 2005 and I have never had any trouble with that problem. My problem is the idler has to be adjusted about every 1500 miles tends to vibrate loose and idle down to about 800 rpms. It sucks when it happens roll to a stop at the light pull the clutch in and bike dies. I am going to replace the whole idler system to see if it solves the problem.
