There should be a bleeder on the caliber. Push the brake pedal down and hold at the same time open the bleeder. Be sure to closer the bleeder before letting off brake pedal. Repeat the process until nothing but fluid comes out. Check the brake fluid as you do it don't let it run out.

SOURCE: 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.

How do i bleed front brake on 2011 ktm 85 sx big wheel


bleeding brakes can be a **** of a job. You could try a trick I know. Take the lid off the brake fluid resivour, pump the front brake lever a few times untill its hard and then tape or zip tie the lever as far in against the hand grip as you can. Make sure none of the brake line is above the resivour ie there are no high then lower spots going along the brake line from the bottom to the top. Leave it like this over night, the theory is the pressure pushes the air bubbles up over night thats why you can have no high then low spots in the line or the air will just sit there. I have done this quite a few times and works well.

My rear brake dose not work. When I removed the cap on my rear master cylinder the rubber plunger or diaphram was twisted and colapsed. Would this mean it is bad. Cant race with no rear brakes help. Its a...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
The Rubber Diaphragm by nature is usually somewhat collapsed and twisted looking. Unless it appears to be non functional it's probably OK. It's important to have fluid and make sure the air is out of the system. There is a bleeder screw to allow for evacuating the air out of the system.
http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx Go To: 2004 > 450 EXC-G RACING (USA) > CHASSIS > BRAKE CALIPER REAR
Also look at the repair kit Item #2 (50313081200)
You can purchase a complete repair manual from this site: http://store.payloadz.com/details/391226-eBooks-Technical-2003-2004-KTM-450-525-EXC-Racing-Owners-Manual.html
Make sure you have serviceable pads, proper KTM brake fluid, and the air is out of the system and the brake cylinder is functional and you will have brakes. There is also an accessory available the cools the fluid for the rear brakes and keeps them from fading if you ride the pedal or are constantly braking. Ask you dealer.
Let us know if we can be of further service.

Kind regards,
TF

My 1997 chevy 1500 z71 brakes suddenly going all the way to the floor. Checked brake fluid and it was low. Could be wheel cylinder? Master cylinder? or ?


well, check the brake lines for leakage after adding brake fluid to the full mark. If the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, it's likely there is a leak somewhere after the master cylinder. If the pedal gets hard after adding fluid, and pumping it several times with the car off, then the master cylinder is still ok.

If air has gotten into the master cylinder, it may have to be bled out on a bench, or using a scanner if that's the way your vehicle is.

Bleeding the Brake System (ABS) Auto Bleed Procedure NOTE: Perform a manual bleeding procedure. If the brake pedal height and firmness results are not achieved, perform the auto bleed procedure below.
NOTE: Perform this procedure when replacing the brake pressure modulator valve or electro-hydraulic control unit.
  1. Perform the manual brake bleeding procedure. Refer to Bleeding the Brake System (non-ABS).
  2. Check the master cylinder fluid level often to prevent running the system dry.
  3. Press the brake pedal firmly and run the Scan Tool Automated Bleed Procedure (for Gas engines) once, or the Function Test (for Diesel engines) four times. Make sure to release the brake pedal between each test.
  4. Perform the manual bleed procedure again. This should remove the remaining air from the brake system.
  5. Bleed the system as many times as needed to obtain the appropriate feel of the brake pedal.

Bleeding brakes


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.,,,
