Clutch bleeder line location R1100s

Hi there. New to me R1100s. Lost all pressure on the clutch lever. Found fluid all over the swingarm and cat. Looks to be leaking from the end of the bleeder line at the bleeder nipple. Gonna pull the slave cylinder to make sure that is okay but the location of the bleeder line looks wrong to me. Itís sticking out the back wher it can get mushed by the shock and right next to the exhaust. This seems like a terrible location. The previous owner had the clutch replaced around 600 miles ago and Iím wondering if this was put back wrong. Thanks for any help my Google fu doesnít seem to be finding any pictures of it.

Mine was/is ziptied to the frame crossbar (in your pic) on the left side. Well out of harms way.

Mine had a black rubber sleeve over it, and then was zip tied to the silver cross bar out of the way.

Probably a little late but I was doing some clutch bleeding last night. Here's a pic of my 99 S.

Thanks. Look like whoever replaced the clutch didnít secure this properly. Underneath the rubber protector on the line it got melted by contacting the exhaust. Found this underneath the rubber sheath. Nice big hole. No wonder I went from having pressure at the lever one corner to none at the next.

Looks like part number 11, vent pipe, of the clutch control fiche for $150 :
https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=51678&rnd=09082020

Spiegler might also sell it but I'm not sure for $68 :
https://spieglerusa.com/bmw-r-1100-s-clutch-bleeder-line-kit.html
https://spieglerusa.com/brake-line-kit-166.html

You can place a free WTB (willing to buy) ad :

Or you can take a chance for this Ebay item for $6.86 :

Thabks. I already ordered a used one from ebay. If it seem to sketchy I’ll bite the billet and get one from MAX. The spiegler one looks to need some machining of the slave cylinder to fit on the slave cylinder according to some other posts I’ve found about it.

I used a Spiegler line from master to slave (left the original bleeder line alone). "Machining" is too fancy a word for it -- you just have to file down a cast stop on the slave cylinder a bit. Not too hard, after you figure out that that's what's causing the banjo to leak. (It looks like it's seated properly, but it leaks like a sieve!)

FWIW, I replaced the OEM master/slave and bleed lines with Spiegler and had no issues whatsoever. I read about someone else having trouble with the banjo bolt fit, but mine had no fit problems.

+1 Spiegler has their lines sorted, glad they're doing these now...
