- Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleed valve (1) on the caliper
and turn the other end of the hose into a container.
- Depress the pedal (2) and keep it full down.
- Loosen the bleed union letting out fluid (at first, only air will
come out), then, closing the union slightly.
- Release the pedal and wait for a few seconds before repeating
the operation until only fluid come out of the tube.
- Close the bleed union to the prescribed torque and check the
fluid level (B) inside the reservoir before reassemblle the cap
If the bleeding operation has be done correctly, the pedal will
have no mushy feel. If not, repeat the operation.
Should the motorcycle, due to a fall during a competition or shop
repairs, show some elasticity of the brake lever stroke, with a
subsequent braking efficiency decrease, you'll to repeat the cir-
cuit bleeding as above described.
During the bleed operation the fluid level
inside the reservoir must never be lower
than the minimum level.
Tightening torque for bleed valve is 1,2 ÷
1,6 kgm (12 ÷ 16 Nm; 8.8 ÷ 11.8 ft-lb).
