bleeding brakes, is bleeding brakes, our bike is no different than a WSBK.
Don't feel the need to apologise!
But I beg to differ - one guy on here found it nearly impossible to bleed his brakes. I've always thought that variability in the manufacturing processes probably leaves some calipers with extra voids or airways, or hoses with a little extra 'give' at the crimped ends.
It's an undeniable fact that you can pull fluid 'uphill' into voids and dead-ends with a vacuum pump, something you could never do with a straightforward 'push' from the master cylinder. The Mity-Vac was recommended by a professional mechanic: that's good enough for me.
Additionally, part of the advantage of the Speed Bleeder design is that thick coating of sealant on the threads. It absolutely makes a difference compared to uncoated bleed nipples (although you can 'fake' it with PTFE tape). Aren't you worried, Noob, about wearing that coating off when you revert to the manual open/close routine with the Speed Bleeders? Seems to me that it destroys the whole point of having them.
Either way up, I still reckon the OP has air in his system.
