    Well, it's a new one to me, anyway. After I encountered much frustration while trying to bleed the brakes on Minx's Hyosung GT650R I constructed a primitive pressure bleeder. You'll need a strip of stiff sheet steel or aluminium the same size as your master cylinder cap, a sacrificial bicycle tube(with the valve intact), and a source of low-pressure compressed air.

    Have a look on this page, under the "Brakes" section, if you're interested.

    (Apologies if this is a double post, the previous one seems to have vanished.)

  2. I use a vacuum bleeder. Best invention ever. About $150 from Repco and
    plugs into an air compressor.
