    Speed bleeders

    I have used speed bleeders on my last 3 cars 2 of which are track cars and my R6.

    If you have never used them or never bled your own brakes then buy some of these and you will never pay a garage to bleed your brakes again.

    Makes life so easy and lever/ pedal feel is rock hard which gives you added confidence braking from 200+kmh on barbs bk straight.

    Not a sales pitch just a happy customer.

    Or get a pneumatic brake bleeding tool. Cost me less than $40 on EBay - just installed braided lines on the K - works a treat

    Vac bleeders are great. Some come with a fluid bottle that sits on the master reservoir so you don't have to top up. The manual ones are ok but one that hooks to a compressor makes it an easy one person operation.

    I usually get mine on the bike flushed and bled whenever D Ball services the bike I could do it myself if needed and may do when I change the old lines out for braided but can't be fucked doing it along with the shims and everything else so get it done with a major service

    Ha ha the DCBS setup is part of the reason I haven't replaced the lines already, 11 lines if you include the clutch and over $500
    You don't bleed every nipple at the same time though

    Yeah itís a bit of a bastard to do from what I can gather. Bummer I was hoping I could bleed them at once Hahahaha.

    Yeah it can be a little tricky due to so many lines and the secondary MC on the front but if you follow the procedure as per the manual it's not too bad, I did have to give D Ball a heads up on bleeding it last time as he just bled it like a standard brake system which will work OK but you're not getting it flushed properly as the SMC needs to be activated to do it properly
    I believe it's a bit more tricky if you are starting from scratch but just a flush/minor bleed it's OK

    Yeah mine's got a reservoir that collects the fluid, so when you run out of brake fluid you just unscrew it, top up your bottle and away you go.

    Need to do do mine. Found a manual online I can follow but Iím still very iffy about doing it. Just need a flush and bleed and while Iím at it may as well bleed the clutch and flush it too.
