Question about 2000 Honda VT 1100 C3 Shadow Aero
Easy....you need to bleed the brakes.......connect a 2 foot rubber hose to the bleed fitting...put a wrench on the bleed fitting....slowly pump the hand brake lever and before it comes to full travel quickly open and close the bleed fitting...repeat the proces about 30 times...make sure the lever is in motion while you open and close the bleed fiting...check the resivor and add brake fluid...repeat the process until all the air is out.....important point is to insure the hand brake lever is in motion when you open and close the air fitting....

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!
