Assistance with swapping out front brake lines - '04 R6 - June 24, 2009, 09:25 PM

I bought some Galfer SS front brake lines for my R6. Anyone who's got the skills to swap them out interested in coming over sometime in the next week to help me out? I don't have a brake bleeder and I've never done this before, so I really don't know where to even start. I'll be all eyes and ears and eager to learn, so I can pass along the favor to someone else in the future.

Food, beer, water, soda, munchies will all be provided. I would like to have this done before heading to Summit next Wednesday. I have time during the evenings and will be around this weekend.

The bike isn't street legal and I don't have quick access to a trailer, so taking it somewhere else is not an option.

Oh, yeah, I got replacement brake fluid, too.

Thanks.

FWIW, you do not need a vacuum brake bleeder. All you need is the right size clear tubing and a water bottle or something similar to catch fluid into and submerge the free end of the tubing. If you want to get fancy, you can put one of these rigs on each bleeder valve and go through the whole circuit a few times.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

agreed. this is what was used when i got help putting my HEL lines on. It turned out to be somewhat easy, just time consuming....maybe cuz we did brake pads too. Sorry I can't help you man....i just learned it myself and haven't done it on my own yet - ain't tryna mess up ur shiz.
