What you're aiming for here is to have the inboard pad as close to the rotor as possible without it rubbing the disc. I cannot tell how grateful I am! Pump lever until firm 6.
A syringe will work better, but I haven't had any problems with the bottle. Join Date Jan 2005 Posts 25,412 These are the Strokers but the technique is the same except with syringe.

Before openeing the bleed valve at the caliper, remove the air in the hose connected to etiher the bottle of syringe.
You may want to remove both tires for this procedure. Originally Posted by coop3422. Join Date Oct 2005 Posts 3,160 Originally Posted by coop3422 ok, and does it matter what kind of suringe i use? Loosen and rotate lever if necessary until screw point upward.
As your pads wear down you need to manually adjust the pistons to make the brake feel solid. Here is what the fitting looks like: At least on cars and I didn't think these disc brakes would be so complicated. Attach tubing to bleed nipple. Spin wheel and check for brake rub.
In the video, they use a bottle and some zip ties to hang it on the handlebars. Any assistance would be appreciated. They say to remove the caliper from the bike but the illustrations show it clearly attached.
Route bleed hose into bottle to catch fluid.
