Bleeding front Brake on 4RT

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've just bought a 2015 4RT and love it! Just getting used to the bike at the moment. The front brake has air in it so I tried to bleed it at the weekend but it seems as you loosen the banjo to bleed through the nipple, fluid seeps out over the caliper - as the same bolt holds the banjo for the brake line. Any tricks or tips for this as it didn't seem an efficient or effective way to do this!

Thanks for any help
Alan

You should only be loosening the bleed nipple to bleed the front brake. Maybe your bleed nipple is seized in the banjo bolt.

reggie - you've nailed it, the bleed nipple was stuck in there.. Thanks so much.
