- My homemade Avid bleed kit
I have used them to bleed my brakes a few times and they work great, no problems with holding pressure. I have never used a proper Avid kit so can’t compare it but can’t imagine any difference, its just a couple of syringes with a bit of tubing after all. I wasn’t paying £35 for it!Posted 8 years agoBurtsMember
Good effort, I also wish I’d seen that before coughing up for the official kit over the weekend!
So any tips for getting a good result? I followed the instructions to the letter on my Juicy 5 and only got a minor improvement, I’ll need to do it again. Lever pulls through most of its travel before biting, even with new pads. One thing I noticed was a very, very small hole in the lever reservoir cap, which leaks a little oil whenever I pressurize the system. Is this normal, or am I overdoing it?!Posted 8 years ago
