I don't have a real answer, but I had the same problem on my 05. I just kept bleeding and pumping the clutch lever and it eventually worked. Don't let the reservoir go too low when bleeding. Maybe 09_Blade can help more.
Can i not undo the stock bolt just a little to bleed. ?It's very likely to be caused by air in the hose and master cylinder, because the OEM master cylinder does not have a bleed port. Air tends to rise, and settle at the top of the system, where it cannot come out because there is no bleed port. It's hard to get the air out through the bottom bleeder, because fluid sinks and air tends to not want to go down the line.
My recommendation for OEM master cylinders that lack a bleed port is to replace the stock banjo with a special banjo bolt that has a built in bleeder.

This is exactly what I am experiencing now after replacing the sprockets and Chain, what could be the remedy to this issue?Clutch bleedong problem
Today i was bleeding the clutch on the 2005 fireblade after putting in fresh brake fluid.
At some stage the clutch felt more stiff than usual and after releasing some pressure i had to start the bleeding process again.
I kept bleeding at the bottom opening and closing the bleeding valve screw at the bottom but pressure never builds up on the clutch lever.
Air was coming out as i seen it in the bleeding tube i added to the bkeeding opening.
When the air stopped coming out it was pushing fluid into my bleeding bottle and the reservoir was draining. But pressure never built up.
What could be the problem and ho
w can i check it?
I would start a new thread, as your problem is completely different from the OP's.I'm new here
