Bleeding your brake system is a straightforward process, but may take some patience and a helping hand.
You can bleed your brakes in two ways:
Manually, or by vacuum pump, but since the results are the same; (removing are from the brake system), We’re going to stick with bleeding manually, because I don’t know about you, but I don’t take my vacuum pump to the track.
Remember! Brake fluid will damage your pads, so keep your shop towels handy!
The bleeding procedure is the same on the front and rear brakes, but you will need to remove the guard on the rear caliper.
Throughout the bleeding process, keep an eye on your reservoir level. If you let it drain, then you will introduce air from the opposite side of the brake system, and you need to start over. If you have any questions or anything to add, please leave them in the comments or on our FaceBook page!
