clutch bleeding problem

Need to add some rear brake fluid so i decided to bleed the front as well. Then i figured id do the clutch.(never had before) Brakes went fine and work great. But the clutch didnt go as well, worked fine before and still works. but now im having to pull the clutch all the way to the handle bar to fully ingage. No more 2 finger shifting. I tried for a hr to get it right bleeding it over and over. And this is as best as i could get it. You think there is air still in the line? Any info appreciated.

Thanks
Nick

The clutch master cylinders are harder to bleed doing the pump from up top method. I would get a Magura bleeder which bascially fills it from the clutch slave cylinder and pushes the air up into the master cylinder.....

Instead of using the lever to try and force the air down and out through the bleed nipple, you're forcing fluid into the system through the bleed nipple at the bottom and back up through the relief port in the master cylinder. This way air is forced up the line, the direction it wants to go naturally, as opposed to being forced down the line.

Simple concept, this is what I usually have to do on my rear brake lines as they seem impossible to get bled properly by the normal method.

i believe if you go to a grocery store or local drug store you can find a baby oral syringe and use that. i've seen it done by folks on youtube bleeding brakes but the theory is the same, air travelling up and out of the system as opposed to down
