Anyone here using speedbleeders? Do they work well/easy to use? If so what size would I need for my 86 gixxer 750? Thanks

I bought a complete set of the Russel Speedbleeders a couple of years ago...and couldn't get them to work.

After screwing around with them for a few hours it took me 15 minutes to bleed my brakes with the original nipples. Just give me an 8mm wrench, clear hose, a diet coke can and DOT fluid and I'm happy.

I still have them if you want them...cheap too.

I had clutch bleeding down to a science on my old 1100. I could do it myself in about 5 minutes.
this is also the reason I swapped to a cable.

I got them to work. I still used my MightyVac. I don't know if they are any easier but they did work.
