bleeding front brakes - '04 model

i am installing new Galfer lines on the front brakes, and need help.

there is a single brake line coming from the lever & running down to the front right calipur. at the calipur, the line is stacked and a short line runs to the left calipur.

what is the sequential order to bleeding the front left and front right calipur?

I'd grab a mityvac and suck from the left, or push from the left, either way. If you do it from the left caliper you'll fill the calier, the line, then the next caliper and up to the m/c. When you're all finished zip tie the brake lever to the bar and leave it overnight, helps to get all of the last air bubbles out.

Bleeding brakes you typically bleed the hose that is has the longest distance from the MC first. So that would be the Left Caliper first then the Right, but with these lines I doubt you'd notice a difference with such a short distance of the lines.

he said that most likely becasue the stock setup uses that one main line to the right then loops to the left, so if there is fresh fluid bleed from the right, when you do the left, your drawing fresh fluid quicker. if you do it like that, do a quick flush in the right one again. on the galfer or other SS lines, there are 2 lines, one to the left, one to the right.
