I need to bleed my SLX brakes following shortening the lines.
The bleed kits seem rather pricey for a syringe and a length of silicon hose. Is there any cheaper source for a syringe and / or silicon tube?
Also, is there a difference between shimano light mineral oil and automotive light mineral oil (other than price)? Anyone know if I can use LHM+ ?
I've not bled brakes on the bike before (done cars several times). I assume I just add clean fluid via the bleed nipple in the caliper and remove bubbly / old fluid from the master cylinder. Which seems sensible, but the opposite to a car?
