Anyone have any ideas as to which is the best way to do it seeing as though it now has a new brake line on the front. Any suggestions or taking the **** much appreciated.pump and shut is the way i do it takes about 15 minutes for front and rear with fresh fluid. ie Pump the brake three times then open the bleed nipple wait until the lever softens up to the grip tighten without letting go of the lever and pump again and so on etc... As for the vacuum i use a large vets syringe and some pipe ( robbed from the wifes lamb reviving kit ) Please note : No lambs died during the making of my Bleeding kit.,,,

Always getting air in my rear brake

About the only ways air can get into the system is either a leak somewhere, or the master cylinder is too low on fluid, but it REALLY has to be low for this to happen.

When you installed the new caliper, did you use NEW sealing washers for the banjo fitting?
Finally, when you bleed the brakes make sure that the caliper is oriented so the bleeder valve is at the highest point.
I have bleed the brakes before on one bike and had a problem getting all the air out. Turns out the caliper was positioned so the bleeder was towards the lower part of the caliper.
I had to rotate the caliper in order to bleed the air out, then reposition it correctly when done.

Bleeding Rear brakes on KTM 250SXF

Get someone to pump the brake pedal a few times, and someone else to undo the bleed screw, it will be a small grease nipple looking thing on the rear caliper. Undo the screw then re-tighten it, holding the pedal down the whole time. Repeat until fluid comes out of the screw, then do it a couple more times to be safe. Be sure to wipe the fluid off your bike as it strips paint. Also make sure the reservoir has plenty of fluid in it before you start.

Hi, The lines have to be bled to get the air out. There is a small fitting on the calipers to do this. The best procedure is to use a piece of tubing and a glass jar. Fill the fluid reservoir up to the top. Put some brake fluid in the jar, barely open the fitting, squeeze the brake lever and watch for bubbles, pump the lever until there are no more bubbles and it tightens up. Be careful not to run the reservoir too low and get air back in the line. This should Fixsya!

Brake calipers spongy feel

Does all the usual tricks include wrapping a thick bungee cord around the brake lever and leaving it overnight? That should force any residual air bubbles to the top of the system where the master cylinder should replace them with fluid.

If that does not work try installing some new bleed screws, even speed bleeders.
