chillax, teflon tape around the threads will ensure a snug fit. yes it the tube is the correct size it should, but sometimes it does get stretched out as you go from the different bleeder ports.
if he had speed bleeders he wouldn't have to worry about air getting into the brake lines.
wow, get up on the wrong side of the bed today?
Yes, it will, of the bleeder/caliper itseld. Sealing the threads of the bleeder with teflon tape isn't going to help avoid fluid leaking past the bleeder and the tubing.
The question had nothing to do with sealing of the bleeder threads. He never asked that, and he also never said he removed the bleeders. All he wanted to know was if the method described would ensure a better seal between the tubing that is collecting the used brake fluid and the outside
of the bleeder.
Not my fault you misunderstood the question and offered flawed logic.
GTS have it your way and yes I admit the Mity Vac may not be the most durable of tools but I will put it up against the old fashion way any day.
I understand I seldom post here but the good thing about lurking on different boards is seeing what different people do for different problems so if I happen to get somebodies bike in my gayrage I might already have an easier way to fix them with that info.
It does not matter how the original poster bleeds his brakes and or clutch as long as the end result is they work.
Later People and hope youns all have a good holiday month
The end result when using a MityVac isn't anywhere near the quality of a manually bled system. Maybe you just have low standards or don't mind brake fade, but I have a huge problem when my brakes turn to shit after a few laps.
Yes, I have used MityVacs, and yes, they are a terrible product. Not only are they poorly made, but they don't get the job done properly.
