Its My Birthday!  Bleeding Front Brake '01 Dragster 1100
Help, I just changed my lower brake lines (from splitter to calipers) and can't get the brakes to bleed correctly. Anybody got a trick? Any ideas/help would be great.

RE: Bleeding Front Brake '01 Dragster 1100
when you put the line on did you gravity bleed it. sometimes with the bleed screw open i'll pump it a few times to get the fluid moving.then give it rapid pumps maybe 50 or more, opening and closing the screw.that usually works. as a last resort tie the lever to the grip and leave overnight the bubbles will migrate to the top.

Thank you for your help. I finally got it done. I found a ton of air trapped in the splitter under the lower triple tree. Once I cracked the bangos, it bled out fine. Bled them in the proper order too. Left caliper, right caliper, splitter, repeat......
