Primo beltdrive/ clutch question

Question for the group.
I just purchased a Primo Rivera brute IV on eBay. I will put it on my CFL in place of the Ultima 3.2”belt drive I currently have.
I had to buy a bunch of parts from Primo just to make this thing fit on my 111 S&S.
My question is, how do I adjust the clutch now? The hydraulic fluid has been drained from the reservoir. Do I fill the fill it up first and then set the screw for the clutch?

On another note... I will be selling my good working Ultima 3.2”belt drive with everything included including the standoff for the WCC belt guard . Reach out to me for pics or info if interested

Tighten your clutch down snug, then your going to fill the reservoir..Try to pump your clutch handle as you crack your banjo bolts to remove air at both banjos first.

Then try to bleed air at your bleeder, "end of line". If clutch doesn't pump up, then you will probably have to use a vacuum bleeder.

There are other bleeder devices I have heard recommended in the forum, but the vacuum bleeder has worked for me..

Once you get pumped up, "all the air out" then it's a simple adjustment at the adjuster nut to the way you like your handle to feel.

Thanks for the reply. I’ve bleed lines many times before but that was with a already adjusted nut on the clutch. Since this is so different I wasn’t sure which comes first. Thank you!
