My 2000 Aprilia Millie RsvR has been sitting for 4 months in tennessee, I live in Florida. When I came to Tennessee the clutch fluid cylinder was empty and the clutch was non-existent.  I tried bleeding the line, but still no clutch....fluid comes through and it appears the clutch pump at the lever is working...any ideas?
I thought perhaps the slave cylinder is gone...no holding any pressure....HELP!!Dead
I did'nt say it was easy to own an Italian Motorcycle

Hello, it takes a lot of effort to bleed clutch, try using a piece of clear tube over the nibble and a jar to see the air bubbles coming through the tube.....it could be the slave cylinder as it is a known fault and its probably cheaper to buy a after market slave where you are cos we live in rip off England.

I figured as much but wanted another opinin, thanks much!  There are a couple of aftermarket companies that produce the slave cylinder, any recommendations?  Evoluzone makes one that is $175usd...but I have heard of another that is also good cant remember the name.
Today I took the slave off and I can tell the hydralic pressure is weak...
