  • Decent brake bleeding set ?

    Hi all
    I have a set of new brake lines to fit and would like to know does anyone recommend a good vacuum kit to get or some cash to use yours
    Im a heavy duty mechanic but havnt dealt much with bike brake systems, but i can imagine a vacuum pump will help - btw its to suit a CBR1000 2012

    Cheers

    Connor

    98% of all Harleys ever sold are still on the road. The other 2% made it home.

    Go buy a $15 bleed kit from autosupermals and take your time to do it right. It is a piece of piss, watch some YouTube vids if you have no idea what you are doing.

      Half fill a bottle with water, run a plastic tube into it and bleed them.

      Pretty simple.

      Zip tie the brake lever in over night to create and open system to allow air to rise, flick the brake lines with a screwdriver or such before removing cable tie and there's your fine bleed.

        i thought when you compress the brake lever it closed the system to atmosphere to operate the hydraulic system

        anyway i just use a $2 transfusion syringe

          Why the hell would you use water anywhere near your brake fluid?!
          Half the reason you periodically change brake fluid is to get rid of the water it absorbs. If you're going to use hose and a bottle submerge the end of the hose in brake fluid.

          Myself I just use a 50cc syringe. You can either push the fluid from calipers to master cylinder (carefully! You don't want fountains of it gushing everywhere) or suck it from the MC down. If the MC has a bleed nipple suck the air from this first while tapping the lever as it helps build better pressure when bleeding the calipers.

                Pressurized bleeding system. Works brilliantly, quickly, and doesn't require speed bleeders.

                  My method of choice.

                  Oil sample collector from Westrac, costs me very little, might cost you a little more. Call westrac and get a price.

                  You can pull a vacuum on the bleed nipple then crack it to draw fluid through. the just top up the master cylinder reservior.

                    I just use a big plastic syringe and suck the brake fluid out the caliper bleed nipple. Works great and is cheap.

                            Bought one from Westrac a few months ago - $65. Only downside is piston pump seal weeps when it gets warm, so some fluid will seep but its minor.

                              30c of 4mm clear tubing from Bunnings. The correct size spanner and, crack, squeeze, close, release. Repeat until no more air.
