To some this meight sound like a backyard plan but I promise you this works.
Get hold of a windscreen washer bottle from a car that the pump is still working,throw some brake fluid in the bottle,bleed some excess air out of the pipe,attach the pipe to the bleeding nipple on the brake calliper (this is a reverse bleeding method),the cap where you fill the brake fluid on the bike reservoir must be open,this method works best when you are two,switch on the little pump and then open the bleeding nipple on the calliper,observe the bubbles in your reservoir,as soon as the bubles stop,close the bleeding nipple first and then switch of the lectric pump,the brake fluid may spill out of the resoirvoir so take great care when performing this task.
If you can not find a windscreen washer bottle,you can also use one of those little mechanical oil cans.

Try this we even use this method when bleeding clutches on big trucks,and vehicle brake systems,it works 100%.

What is the proper way to bleed the brakes on this bike with ABS?


Hi,I had a yamaha fj1200 that had abs and when bleading the brakes I just blead the brakes in the normal way,I found that it makes it easyer to blead,open resouveor cap and top up and put a rag around the resouvor to protect any paintwork then get a bungie tie and slowly pump the brake lever slowly as not to creat lots of air bubbles in the system,then rap the bungie around the lever and handle bar to keep the lever pulled in,then go to the back caliper and put the tube in a glass and fill with brake fluid untill it covers the end of the tube,put the other end on the blead nipple a slowly open the nipple just so you can see the fluid coming out,when it stops flowing tighten the blead nipple and do this again untill all the air is out and you have clean fluid coming through,the do the same to the front,job done.
there is a self bleading tube with a valve on the end so that the air dose not go back in the system,there is also a brake bleading system on the market that is a self bleading system where you have tube that connects to the resouvor with its own lid, and a tube that runs from that to a bottle which you put the brake fluid in,and a tube runs from that to a connector like the one that is on a foot pump,that connects to a wheel wich supplies the presure to push the fluid through the system,so with this system all you have to do is open the blead nipple and lock it again when done.
I hope this was some help.
Ive explaned it becouse not every one knows how to do this,so sorry if im telling you how to suck eggs.

Advice on bleading the rear and the front break do I do this the same way as the right frontbreak


Both front and rear brakes have identical style bleeder valves, and each corresponds to one of the fluid reservoirs on the handlebars. Both are bled the same way. Hope that helps.

Front brakes...weak?...soft?... doesn't stop as quick..?...good linings/pads ...25000 miles on the bike


how long has it been since you changed the brake fluid? more than two years. brake fluid doesnt last as long as you think...to tell you how important brake fluid is ...racers change it out almost every month..but they do travel at a lot higher speeds and dont want to take any chances..you'll have to drain all the oil fluid out and refill with fresh, not old that's been setting around,...get some dot 4 brake fuid..and bleed the brake systems.you could also have moisture in the lines thats the most common problem. hope this helps!

Zx9r b1 not much leaver on front brake fitted new seales pads have bled both sides also reverse blead then syphon blead both at same time leaver still soft any poblems with this model ?


hi,this might help,this is a fairly common problem,locate the bolt that holds the brake line onto the master cylinder,pump the lever 3 or 4 times,crack the bolt and bleed the air out of the master cylinder,you may have to do it a couple of times to get all the air out,it takes very little air to create a problem..put a rag or something down so as not to spill fluid onto your paint,brake fluid just loves paint..hope this helps...cheers

No brakes


Since you have done everything else it is the cylinder that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. The diaphragm in the cylinder has gone bad not allowing enouhg pressure
