I would like to start out and say hello, new to forum. looks like the right place to get the help i need.
So i'm fixing my friend smashed 05 r6 delta box 3.
I replaced all the fairings, headlights, (non mechanical) etc no problem.
Now his R6 has a beefy brembo brake master clinder, which (has a bleeder on it) - the little plastic 90 degree pcv valve that goes to the reservoir - snapped -(dont know how, but it did in the crash) - simlar to this one
I did some research - you cant buy just that part gotta buy a whole new BMC
so he goes out and finds one of of an "05" R6-S for 40 bucks. thing looks puny. no bleeder on top. looks pretty much like a straight cheap one off of ebay - the bolt thats in it is designed for 2 banjo bolts and his stock one is just 1
anyway - it bolts up fine, swap out the banjo bolt for the 1. reconnect - fill it up and start the bleeding process.
start... there is nooooo pressure in that thing. I read the thread on here bout how you gotta squeeze it for ever to get the air bubbles out etc and did.. the brake fluid isn't even getting down to the calliper bleeders to come out.
so - if you read all this i thank you. and here is my question
1. can you swap out a pcv valve on a BMC? - so he could use his stock one and just fix that broken part.
2. - will the "R6s" (i dont think it is even from an yamaha) bmc work on an R6 pressure wise? - and if so does the one he got sound broken?
