50% off topic, but has anyone used the speed bleeders on their calipers? Kinda like a one way bleeder valve, just crack it, pump a few times then tighten back up... Sounds a lot easier than the old way?
I have one but wasn't all that impressed with it. You have to have it somewhat bled before it will work as it needs a fair amount of fluid pressure to open the check valve. The best results I've had is to use a large syringe and force fluid back to the master cylinder from the caliper bleeder or the old standby - pump the lever and crack the bleeder. Never had much success with my vacuum bleeder. Works good on the car but not the bike.
