Bleeding brakes.......

Moto Joe said:
the most effective way I have found (and I have tried them all over the years) for a radial MC system, with radial mount brakes, is NOT using a mechanical device (mity vac) like alot advise. I dont know why, but they just dont seem to work well on these systems.

Tie/tape a small cup or jar to the leg of the fork ABOVE both calipers bleeders. Also somehow suspend another cup above the master cylinder bleeder (tape it to the mirror maybe).

Now run a hose from EACH caliper to the cup on the fork leg, and one hose from the MC to the other cup.

Starting with the MC, JUST BARELY crack the bleeder screw. Just enough for there to still be a little bit of pressure requried to squeeze the lever, but open enough to pump fluid out. Do not open the bleeder too far, as you will just pump air from around the threads of the bleeder screw. now pump away till you see no air. No need to pump, hold, crack bleeder, close bleeder repeat. Just crack it and pump until you dont see air, then close it. IMPORTANT Keep the reservoir full.

Tap on the brake lines to loosen any bubbles that may be stuck to the inside of the lines.

Do the same for each caliper as well. Same technique and tap each line between each time you swap valves. Repeat at each of the three bleeders at least twice, if not three times.

While you are at it, also be sure to clean ALL brake dust off of the inside of the calipers, where the pads are. Any build up there will cause the brake pistons to stick, and can cause poor brake performance

Be carefull not to spill brake fluid ANYWHERE. It will eat paint. Clean up ASAP if you accidently do.

Thanks go out to all the Search Nazi Staff. We worked together in the background to get this together. I'll be adding to the original post as more information comes in.

Now nobody can say we don't do any good for the fourm. ;)

Great job, search nazi team

But remember, the day everyone search, and no one asks questions that have already been asked.

The forums will get about 2 post a day.

Which will not be fun at all.

Congrats again on the sticky

Awesome work on this, it makes the forum look so much cleaner now without the 10 separate stickies we used to have at the top. Nice job :cheers
