Never bothered on mine. Took max 5 minutes to get it good the old fashioned way.

Fair enough, I'll just keep bleeding it the traditional way. It's tricky as the reservoir is so small. Manuel and web gurus all indicate a reverse bleed is the way to go...but I don't have the means to do that so I'll retry the old fashioned way again.

Thanks

As a last resort: 5' of hose that fits on the bleeder nipple. Fill with fluid. Crack nipple open, blow on end of hose, GENTLY. It'll do the job, then a straight bleed once the fluid has settled.

You can go to a pharmacy and ask for a 20cc or bigger syringe.
Vets (horse, cow) are a good source.
I don't remember how I did mine, but I guess I first manually fill the slave and then used the old way

Just a FYI for everyone.

I decided to go check out both Limerick forest and Scotch line Rd. yesterday and they both had these signs all over the place.



Looks like things are closed for the next little while.

Thanks for posting. Good of them to put up those signs. Riding this time of year can really destroy trails for not only this season but the next as well.

Saw several guys going in with trailers with bikes over the weekend, dont know if they turned around when they saw the signs or not. I did see a group of ATV's going through though.

They do close it up every spring. But the trail that goes past me is drying up quite nicely.

What happens to the trails if people ride them early? Digging ruts in the soft earth?
