Question about 1997 Yamaha XJR 1200
Bleeding the brakes can take a while as the amount actually squirted throught the pump is tiny. the best thing I have found is to go to halfords and buy a bleeding kit which has a one way valve ( not the orange pipe and plug). You then slaken the bleed valve slightly ,attach the hose to the nipple and put the other end in a container to save the fluid that you will be pumping out. Then open your brake fluid reservior on your handal bars and get pumping with the lever, making sure the reservior never runs out of fluid by keeping it topped up. When there is just pure fluid coming out of the bleed valve(no air bubbles in the fluid) tighten the bleed nipple. job done. It really does trake a long time especially if you have an air lock, builds your arm muscles up.
another way is to pull the lever fully in and tie it off on the bars and leave it for 24 hrs, also heating the claiper with a hair dryer causes the air to rise up the pipe and back into the reservoir.

SOURCE: bleeding breaks
it's best you do all wheels at the same time. start from the farthest wheel from the master cyclinder. after you have bled each wheel cylinder/caliper ... fill the master cylinder again to ensure enough fluid is in it. if you do just the front you are likely to **** air back into the front from the rear brakes (if any air is present).
