Re: Failing to bleed brakes. Please help.
Update: My mechanic buddy bled the brakes using my reverse pressure bleeder but managed to get it down right. What he did differently, which is not in the user manual or any other youtube vid, was direct both ends of the tubes into the Motul brake fluid bottle and get squeezing the gun until there was no air in the tubing. From there, he put 1 end of the tubing to the bleeder valve and started forcing fluid in. This way, the reservoir doesn't "burp" as the manual calls it with a bunch of bubbles coming up. It was quick and easy.
The rears were a bitch though. We did it according to the book but the rear brakes weren't grabbing as they should so we kept bleeding it several times over. Eventually, we came to the conclusion that the new rear Vesrah pads need time to get bedded in since they're fresh. A few runs on the street and highway got it feeling good again.
In the future, I'm going to make sure I bed-in fresh pads for a week before bleeding the brakes to avoid confusion as to what is going on.
Thanks for all your help guys.
