I want to change the coolant and I am replacing the ABS module. What I'm looking for is a pictorial on how to bleed the brakes properly.
I did find a thread on changing the coolant.
I also need to know where the "Hall of Wisdom" is hiding, I could never find it.
Sorry for wasting anybody's time and thanks in advance !!
You more than likely have the non servo Teves unit in your bike.
Bleeding is therefore straight forward ( if you have the older servo unit then ignore this post has bleeding will be a pig )
Although a spare pair of hands is handy.
When you have reinstalled the abs unit and tightened the four brake hoses.
Place bike on centre stand.
Remove brake reservoir cover.
Using a self bleed kit ( one of those that has a non return valve on the end )go to the front brake calipers and doing one side at a time, connect the plastic tube to the brake bleed nipple and slacken off brake bleed nipple a quarter turn.
Slowly pull the hand brake in and out whilst slowly pouring new fluid into the brake reservoir.
When no more air bubbles are present in the tube ,and reservoir is at correct level tighten the brake bleed nipple whilst holding in the front brake lever, repeat for other side replace reservoir cap.
For the back the reservoir is located under the rear seat.
Same procedure, but this time that spare pair of hands will come in handy .
Pump the rear brake pedal slowly, when there are no more air bubbles in the tube hold brake pedal down and tighten bleed nipple.
Brake bleed completed.
Is your Abs module faulty ?
