I know your new or don't know how to look on this site but there is a "how to" section" on basic things like this:

problem is some of those posts are old or don't have Pics anymore so I think we need to delete them but hopefully that will help.

mighty-vac brake bleeder. great tool, and makes the job cleaner as well as speeds up the bleeding process. also be sure to put some rags around your resivoir, and on you fairngs, and swingarm when you do th erear. be careful no tto get the fluid on you plastic, and painted parts. brake fluid will ruin you stuff. if you do ge tsome on it wipe it off asap.not a hard job just somewhat time consuming.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.~unknown~

IMO....Not something to experiment on :headshake ...if you do not know "how to" on important things like brakes, get a pro or someone with experience to do it.

Its not a hard job. but if you have never bled any brakes before go with a pro to install them there is a lot of things that can be frustrating and damaging if your not careful. You can route them incorrectly or have to turn the banjo fittings you can over torque banjo and bleeder bolts, wreck plastic and paint with brake fluid. And still not get all the air out. But its not a super technical thing to do. on a scale of 1 to 10 one being an oil change and 10 being an engine rebuild this job is a 3. mostly becouse they are your brakes and are the most important part of your bike. If you dont think they are take your ft brake lever off and try not to use your rear brake and go for a short slow ride! Scary.

Everyone has to learn sometime. I would say as long as you are mechanically inclined and have confidence in your own ability to give it a shot. Take your time and make sure you do things right. Maybe see if there are any board members near by that might be able to help too. Best of luck
