    Hello I suspect from the sponginess and colour of the fluid that my bike is still on the original brake fluid - or at least, very old fluid. It is a 2001 F650GS. I want to bleed the brakes to ge tth enew fluid in and I'm comfortable enough with what to do on "normal" brakes. Can anyone...

    I have just put a SS rear brake hose on my (non ABS) Dakar and can I get it to bleed? Can I funk. :wall: I've tried everything I can think of. I've tried undoing all the joints in the pipework to bleed it bit by bit; I've tried sucking the fluid from the nipple (ooer); I tried rigging up a...

    The practice of bleeding brakes becomes necessary when changing a brake component such as a master cylinder or slave sylinder or hose. You have to bleed the air out of the system. Recently I saw a thread which included the question of how to bleed ABS brakes. Today I changed my pads, and...
