FYI the SpeedBleeders that were recommended to me for the front calipers are the wrong size, the Rear and Master Cyl. work great. I'm working on getting the correct size by Friday and will post the correct part # for anyone that may want it.

Sorry for the error.

The correct # for the front SpeedBleeders is SB6100 or SB6100 SS for stainless.

Quick question re bleeding brakes: -

I have a bit dot 5.1 left (quite a bit). Can I use this to mix with the standard fluid (think this is dot 4) or must I stick with DOT4.

Any recommendations for best fluid to use if I cant.

Thanks.

Hi,can anyone help RE. bleeding brakes.

I changed my bars the other day and had to disconnect the master cylinder and reconnect quickly. Lost a small amount of fluid.

Bled both of the front calipers but brakes are still very spongy.

Noticed there is a bleed nipple on the master cylinder. Does this need bleeding too, if so in what order? Could thaqt be causing it?

If not could the ABS need bleeding or something? It definitely feels like it still has air in it

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Bleed M/C first, then go to the far caliper and bleed that... then bleed the closer one.
