lol personally, i haven't had all that much luck with a mityvac on brakes either. i use them to test MAP sensors, open/close vac-operated solenoids, operate fuel-operated fuel shutoffs.. etc.

that's what they're good for.

White I had a brand new Mity Vac right out of the package that squirted fluid at me out of the vent hole. Took it back and the 2nd one did the same thing. Bad batch so get my money back and off to another store for a different batch number. That day I should have just hand bled.
Luckily the customer had left the bike so he was not waiting. Now I have the Cycle Gear version ( fine Chinese product) and it just keeps on working.


I remember when pissin contest were fun then comes age and prostate problems so now if I do a pissin contest I wind up pissen on my own feet.


You want to have fun doing a brake fluid flush you should try it on a 2004 K1200GT beemer. It will make you want to go to war with Germany again.

lol ohh i knows it. thus why i'm semi-retired from the game. i have moved from general service. hell i've moved mostly off engine building as well for the most part. 3 more customer builds to move and i think i am done for a while wit this shit, with the exception of my turbo build, nasty NA race-spec ZX7R build, 2 VTR race-spec motors and a couple little dirty toys.
i lubs me some german engineering, but hate workin on the stuff.

White I had turbode my 1200 ZRX and as long as it was 8 to 10 pounds it was ok but one bike nite the busa's were wanting to play on the way home and I told them my top end may be 150 at best and after that they would do the fly by. They wanted to run from a 60 mph roll to see who hit 150 first and I said ok since I would already be in turbo land. I decided to crank up the boost without race gas.

They did not know what hit them but I killed a top ring rail on #4. Burned a little plating off the cylinder too.

oopppssssss............................

Main reason is it saves time. Not so much on a simple flush but when new lines go on I don't feel like waiting for gravity to pull the fluid thru. The Mity Vac is a personal preference so use it if you like it and if you don't like it then don't use it.

Here is one for youns. I rebuilt a set of calipers and fluid would bleed from one but not the other. Drove me nutz trying to figure out what the problem was so I google it and some one on a Yamaha board had the same problem which was with the pistons pushed all the way in there the fluid would not get behind unuf to push them out. Little shot of air to move the pistons forward was all it needed.

Google also found the problem with after market levers that would apply a little pressure to the master cylinder and not let it release. That one took me by surprise but a little filing and a dab of paint had them levers working great.
