Hello - I suspect there is still air in the hydraulic line for the clutch. If you bleed the system depending on gravity to bleed it for you, it just won’t bleed properly. Pressure-bleeding it from the bottom-up is sometimes required. I would recommend having the clutch hydraulics flushed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, and repair this problem, getting you back on the road.
