Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleed valve, and run the
other end of the hose into a container.
Bleed the brake line and the caliper as follows:
Repeat this operation until no more air can be seen com-
ing out into the plastic hose.
Pump the brake lever until it becomes hard, and apply
the brake lever and hold it [A].
Quickly open and close [B] the bleed valve while holding
the brake lever applied.
Release the brake lever [C].
The fluid level must be checked often during the bleed-
ing operation and replenished with fresh brake fluid as
necessary. If the fluid in the reservoir runs completely
out any time during bleeding, the bleeding operation
must be done over again from the beginning since air
will have entered the line.
Tap the brake hose lightly from the caliper to the reser-
voir for more complete bleeding.
Remove the clear plastic hose.
