Bleeding Brakes

I know alot of you know how to do this basic job, but i found this video that really helped me bleed my brakes properly...Just recently upgraded to the 08 blade calipers and zx14 master cylinder, and brakes locked up on me ironicly..just kept building pressure while riding...i didnt know that you should keep the resevoir right at or under the full mark..and that its bad to put to much...

still a good find man and nothing worse when doing brakes then for the front to slowly start building pressure and proceed to lock up the front wheel!!!!

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

That's a great find. That should help some of the new members who are just starting to wrench on their own bikes.
