Question about 1996 Suzuki GSF 600 S Bandit
Brake fluid will eat away at plastic and paint!
Wipe any spilled fluid with the rag and lots of water.
Wrench/Spanner (average 10mm)
Brake bleeding kit (rubber fitting, clear hose, small container)
Brake fluid overflow container (to put the brake bleeding kit small container in)
Attach the brake bleeding kit to the brake fluid nipple located on the brake caliper.
Loosen the nipple so the fluid is free to flow down the brake bleeding kit tube and into the small container
Remove the master cylinder cap (top) so you can monitor and refill more brake fluid into the master cylinder as you bleed the brakes.
Pump the brake lever so the old/new brake fluid is forced through the tube into the brake bleeding kit fluid container
Keep the volume of the master cylinder constant (near full) as to not have it empty. Keep pumping on the brake lever until the fluid coming out is clear (rather than the old brown/black colour).
Once all the tiny air bubbles are gone hold pressure on the brake level and re-tighten the brake fluid nipple to close it off.
Replace the master cylinder top cover.
Remove the brake bleeding kit from the caliper and use the rag and water to clean up any spillage.
Alternately, you can pump the pedal once, open the bleeder then shut it, pump the pedal again, open the bleeder and shut it and continue (adding as necessary) until the fluid is clear.
The advantage to doing it this way is much less pumping to get the air out of the lines you created when you first started on the first method.
