    The brakes on my GPZ900R had gone from "Whoa!" to "WHOOOOOAAAAA!" over
    the past few weeks, so I finally got around to bleeding them a few
    days before the GP run[1].

    So far as I recall, every bike I've ever owned has had 1 bleed nipple
    per brake caliper, and maybe an extra one for the clutch slave
    cylinder[2]. As a result of being fitted with a fearsomely complex
    anti-dive system, Snotty has no fewer than 6 brake bleed nipples and 1
    for the clutch! Fortunately for me they're all located at the "high
    points" in the lines and it only took about 2 pumps of the brake lever
    per point, but I was still impressed.

    Beats the hell out of trying to bleed CX500 brakes[3], I can tell you.

    [1] See Pisshead? That's how you're SUPPOSED to do it! ;-)
