turn your fork tubes so that the bleeders are at 12 o'clock instead 6 o'clock.

whats happening is the passageway opening under the cap is 180' out from the bleed and when the bleed is in the 6 o'clock position the passage fills with oil....if its in the noon position it self drains:thumbsup:

Will this also do the same on a yz 450f 2006? Mine do same thing when bleeding pressure from forks.

idk, its easy enough to find out :banana:

Mine are at the 12 and still spit out oil....Then again I'm running 15w. I'm changing that this weekend down to 5w
