Cruiserhubby found the proper tool. It has a trigger, a collection cup, and a hose. I wish I could be more helpful!

These are what Im buying now. All you need if you have these is a hose and a cup to keep the brake fluid away from the bike.

One person can do the job with these.

I hate using mityvac's.. I prefer the traditional way. With a hose.. Pump, hold, crack bleeder, close bleeder, release. I feel much more confident that way.

I have done all methods, conventional, mityvac, speedbleeders, external check valve, etc. The best results I've had have been the following (in order from best to worst)
1. mityvac + speedbleeder
2. conventional + external checkvalve
3. external check valve
4. speedbleeder
5. conventional

the best method I've found is to prime it (if there is a ton of air in the system, first installation for instance) using method 1. For bleeding at the track, I typically use method 2, as I feel the mityvac causes some bubbling if you are just bleeding.

With the external check valve + conventional, its a snap, that way you can keep a good head of fluid on top of the bleeder.

mark what kind of external check valves do you use, and where do you get them?

This:


Plus a length of the right-sized clear flexible tubing. Drill a hole in the cap to receive the tubing. Have about an inch of clean fluid in the bottom of the bottle. Put the other end on the bleeder valve. Done.


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

The old fashion way here. No bleeding tool, just a wrench and the brakes.


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!
