It's not as painful as you think.
Wait, air you saying that air in the system will not cause the brakes to fade as they heat?

Because it will.

we have a pressurized power bleeder too.
its a PITA to use. MUCH MUCH easier to do it manually.

especially on a bike where its a one man job. since you can reach the lever/pedal, and the bleeder screw at the same time.

I wouldn't be much of a tech if I believed that, now would I.
Whan you start doing timing jobs on quad cam, vanos VVT BMW motors, feel free to school me about brakes.


It's are, not air, BTW.

You know it's right, Gene. Air will not only make a lever spongy from the get go, but it WILL cause their performance to degrade over the length of a ride.

It't not JUST water that lowers the performance of the fluid.

I was fucking with you because you mentioned air boiling....

An evacuator or a power bleeder works just fine, but everybody, including me, finishes off with a simple pump, hold, crack.

Yes, I did misspeak. I meant to include water in the sentence but did not. Expands would have been more appropriate a word to use when referring solely to any gas/air in the lines.

I use the Mity Vac to where I see all fluid coming out of the bleeder start tapping the lever to see if bubbles are forming in the master cylinder. I have even had to pull a brake or clutch lever off and use a round rod to push the mc piston in further to make the air bubbles go away. Those may have been mc rebuilds that I did?


I think the moment I said Mity Vac this thread got hijacked so my apologies to the original poster.
