    Thumbs up Brake Bleeding

    I just Finished Installing GALFER Steel Braided Brake Lines on the Front and rear of The CBR , I was Haveing a Few Problem's Getting them to Bleed Especially the Front's , So I bought one of These MIGHTY VAC'S from Lordco
    $45.00 out the Door , It Came With A Whole Lot of Attchments for doing a Variety of Job's . Brake Bleeding / Hyd Clutch Bleeeding / Vacuum Testing ETC. I Just Hooked It up to the Caliper Bleeders , Pumped up the Gauge to 25 PSI, And It Drew out all of The Air in An Instant , Really cool tool for thoes of You who Like to Do There own Bike and Car / Truck Work, I Am in the Middle of a Brake Job on My 4x4 as well and Used it to Bleed out the Brake System.
    Here are a Couple of Pictures.

    Best way to bleed brakes when you have to remove large volumes of air.

    But the tried and true method of pumping the lever works fine in a normal brake bleed with just a little air.

    I have one as well. Yup for large amounts of air it was great but in the end to finish it off I went with the tried and true.

    Picked up a very similar tool from Princess Auto today. On sale for $25 plus tax.
