Does anyone have one? Or do you know if it will fit the monster 1200 reservoirs. I have been trying to contact the company to find out but their customer service has not been so good. Guess they don't need the business
Brakes are good but want to do preventative maintenance and flush my brakes. I am just looking to see if there is a better way than traditional method or using vacuum bleeder. Thanks for the tip on flipping the rear caliper.
Syringe fluid from reservoir... compress brake calliper pads...syringe fluid again...then bleed in fresh fluid...doing it this way and you can flush both front and rear with only one small can of fluid
Ok great. Are you just using traditional bleeding technique of pumping them holding lever while cracking open the bleeder? I have read a lot of posts saying the rear was a problem to bleed that's why I was thinking of going with the power bleeder
*if air is present or introduced*...the rear will be IMPOSSIBLE to bleed with any technique or tool unless the caliper is removed...that being said I use the lever and pedal initially to refill the calipers then switch to a hand vac/pump to pull fluid until it's clear but only because it's quick and clean...typically it only takes an ounce or less; for the rear; once it's bled and I'm certain the old fluid is out I will remove the caliper and do a final bleed by hand, pressing the brake pedal by hand and cracking the bleed screw...at least once...it's taught feeling is immediate....caliper just needs the bleed screw aimed up or angled, don't get too carried away...I've pumped liters through my back brake and had no lasting effect until I removed it...a bit of warning...when your compressing the pistons into the caliper make sure the cover is on the reservoir! Same goes for filling the pistons by squeezing the lever
I used a 10mm allen wrench to keep the pads separated...this is a pic of the front...actually using increasing sized Allen keys I was able to compress the pistons evenly and then left one in as I did the final bleed in the rear
