Brake Bleeding

I didn't see your earlier post. Bleeding the brakes on a "99 should be no problem. At worst you'll have to get at the ABS unit, which is under the seat.

Smartest thing you can do is get a set of SpeedBleeders for your bike.
They make the process so simple you won't believe how easy it is.

I limped into my dealer last week for clutch and brake system flush and bleed. All circuits. I have ABS, integrated, and whizzy pumper. $94 including labor, parts and taxes. I took all the plastic off myself and rode it over naked. The bike not me...

Special tools [2] from BMW were $188 which is OK but for the 2yr and 4yr recommended service intervals, $94 is OK too.

I'll have to dig out the service receipt for the charged hours...but I did remove all fairing pieces before delivery. Front, sides, and tail pieces. That has to account for some savings. They may have rushed a tad as the cap [left side, round, course threads, snaps to frame] for the connection to the computer was not installed. Found it under the seat when I started to put it back together again. Still...

Oh, no doubt. But, you're bleeding two front calipers, one rear, and six control circuits on the ABS pump. The ones on the pump mean you have to remove and reinstall the battery. Plus filling up the reservoirs when they gets low. That's the bi-annual brake bleed.
Annual is just the calipers, and if you have speed-bleeders, yeah, an hour would do it easily if the plastics were off.

Found and checked my work order:

2 cans of brake fluid @ $3.75 [$7.50]
Replace all brake and clutch fluid [$85]
Shop Supplies [$1.70]
Tax [$0.62]
Total [$94.82]

Resolution notes: Replaced all brake fluid in brake & clutch systems. Performed bleed test on ABS system - passed bleed test.

I discussed in detail with the service manager about performing the bi-annual brake service and I can only assume that he followed through even though the work order comments are not specific.
