- Bleed kit for Shimano XT brakes
I’ve never bled Shimano brakes. Have loads of (clean) syringes about from Reverbs and things.
What specialist stuff do i need? Just the Shimano kit Wiggle are selling for £8 or is the Epic Bleed Kit worth £15? http://www.epicbleedsolutions.com/products/bleed-kits/shimano/complete-kit/
Also, is there anything useful in the Epic bleed kit for Hope? I’ve always just done it with nothing more than a bit of tube.Posted 5 months agolyrikalMember
Your reverb syringe fitting will screw into the top bleed port. No need for the bucket.
You can use this syringe open and let gravity take the fluid through or with the plunger and give it a little helping hand. Remember to position the calliper so it’s bleed port is at the top. I normally remove it and take the pads out. I have a bit of nylon that I put in between the pistons for bleeding that saves any danger of contaminated pads. All you need is a bit of clear rubber hose to attach to the bleed port and an empty whisky bottle to collect the oil.Posted 5 months ago
