How to bleed brakes

Recommended Posts

Best way to do it is with your normal brake bleeding vacuum tool. If you don't have one of those then take the top off the brake reservoir, top it off, pump the brakes and hold them, open the bleed nipple at the caliper momentarily then shut it, pump the brake lever again and hold. Keeping cracking open the nipple and bleeding it til all you get out of it is fluid. Keep an eye on the level in the reservior, keeping it topped off. DO NOT let off the brake lever while the nipple is open.

Search for "back bleed"...I've covered this topic several times in the past. It's the easiest, fastest, and most reliable way I've found to bleed/fill brakes. Supplies will cost about $7
