Pfft, everyone knows Harleys don't go fast enough to need brakes.

TJ talked me into buying a mighty vac, little bastard. It's a shit product, I think I left it at my old house when I moved.

Much vac hate in this thread. I've been using them for years with zero problems. Quit buying those plastic ones, they're "for kitchen use" only.
I use model #07300 here at work, not those fucking toys you guys are bitching about.

Great picture quality...........

I use one to get the majority of the air out, then finish the old fashioned way.

And yes, I have bled brakes many many times, and am somewhat of an expert at extracting every last bit of air from the system. Would you like references for the brake systems I have assembled and bled for AMA race teams?

MityVacs being inferior to bleeding brakes the proper way by hand isn't an opinion, by the way, it's a fact.

Well not really. Air and other contaminates in the lines lower the boiling point, not only because they have lower boiling points than the fluid itself, but because they reduce the pressure in the system. When the system boils those contaminates turn to vapor. That's when shit starts getting mushy. Even if the lever feels firm after you're done bleeding there can still be air in the system, and lever feel will get worse as you ride. Water isn't the only thing that lowers the boiling point

Not to be confused with brake fade caused by the pads themselves.

LNL that set up looks like it is worth more than my bikes. It looks big enuf to flush the coolant in the 919.

We have a Mazda dealer mechanic on another board that uses an air powered bleeder for doing bikes. Looks like it would hold almost a gallon of fluid. Kinda scary when he brings that monster out.
