Default Bleeding brakes m8? Help!

Has anyone done this? Any suggestions? I can't seem to get the air out of the line.

Thanks

open the top res, fill her up, now crack the bottom line a bit, tighten it, pump the brake over and over, you will see bubbles come up, keep doing it until the bubbles stop.....then pump it a few more times, top it off, fasten down the cover and make sure the brake works

bleeding the brake line at the bottom works also.....but the other way requires no tools and works on everything

Glad you got it! You can also go to a farm store and buy a large feeding syringe and piece of rubber hose that will fit on the bleeder on the caliper. Fill the syringe with brake fluid, take the cap off the reservoir then push the fluid through the system from the caliper bleeder screw(don't forget to open it). Go slow and when the res is full, the air will be out and you can close the bleeder then the res. Takes about 2 minutes, start to finish. I've done this with four wheelers too and it works really well and you don't need a power bleeder.
