How to Repair Motorcycle Brakes : How to Use a Pneumatic Bleeder on Motorcycle Brakes


On behalf of Expert Village my name is Seth
Williams, I work for D-K Service and I’m here to tell you about simple street bike brake
repair and inspection. Now we’re going to be bleeding the brake system. This is for
the most part a two man job, you’re going to need one person to bleed the brakes, one
person to fill the reservoir. Especially with a pneumatic bleeder which we’re going to be
using today. This is about the easiest route you can take. As you can see I’ve taken the
rubber cap off the bleeder bolt. This particular motorcycle is going to have two bleeder’s;
one for each system. So we’re going to go ahead and bleed each side starting with the
farthest side. So what I’ll do is get behind there with my wrench and preset that on there;
it is an 8 millimeter for the most part. Sometimes it can be a 10 millimeter. And we’re ready to go. So, undo the lock nut,
look over manual bleeder, break that loose. As you can see here, we’re going to start
getting fluid through the caliper; it’s going to be how we bleed our brake system. Now see,
that’s good and tight. Bleed your system through.
