Any tips on replacing hydraulic clutch cable?

This will be my first time to replace a hydraulic clutch cable. Any helpful tips? It seems straight forward. Drain, replace, refill, bleed, wheelie to test. There is always something I wish I would have known whenever doing things for the first time though.

make sure you don't lose any of the parts when removing the slave cylinder. If I remember correctly, push rod only goes in one way, but had some type of sleeve that went over the push rod itself. Oh yeah, make sure not to bleed and build too much pressure. I did this and when I went put into gear the bike it wouldn't move....took it to Motorcycles Unlimited and brandon said fluid shot clear across the shop when he cracked the bleeder.

Got it. I'm also installing an upgraded slave cylinder piston. Apparently the one on this Husky has a seal that fails. This thing has turned me into a mechanic again. Haven't really worked on bike since I sold my 67' Triumph. Mostly preventative measures, but only had it for a couple weeks and already will have done a lot of work. Bled all the squishy lines. Fixed fuel pump, fixed low fuel sensor, rebuilt slave cyclinder, replaced clutch line, replaced sprockets, new body panels, set suspension, and adjusted valves. Maybe I'll actually get a chance to ride it soon. LOL.
