Actually Chromo .... you need 4 for the bike.

By the time you hunt up andget the mighty vac out and connected, you would already have one caliper bled and halfway through the 2nd.

And if you have an 1800 it's seven or perhaps more.

I was trying to think why anyone would need more than 3, unless, like me, you have a sidecar. Then I happened to remember later model bikes have things like hydraulic clutches and such. Still not sure why the 1800 would need so many though.

I like the idea of the speed bleeders, but kinda expensive at $7 each really. Needing 3 for 1 bike is $21 and can buy a good vacuum pump setup for about that.
Can use the vacuum pump on more bikes (or cars trucks) then instead of spending $21 per bike.

Also can use Vacuum pump to test for vacuum and leaks in stuff.

You can guess what I think the best value is I think LOL

Pretty simple concept for those speed bleeders, just a 1 way valve. A tiny spring, BB gun BB, drill bit, you could make your own fairly easy probably from a normal brake bleeder.

All it really amounts to is a BB seals the hole pressed down by the spring. Loosen bleeder and the bb seal the hole so air cannot enter but lets the pressure push through when the brake is pumped.
Simple one way valve is all it is.

A long piece of tubing for a tight fit on a normal bleeder and some Teflon tape to seal the threads with a 1 way valvae should work as well and be usable for all wheels. They sell those for like $2 at auto parts stores and you only need 1 of them!
What you are paying for is convienace. I sure wish I knew about these back in my Stock Car days whereI use a hand vac pump & would bleed the brakes about twice a month. Speed Bleeders are so much easier. I'm going to put them on my P/U truck the next time a brake job comes along.

Hmm, off the top of my failing brain I think the 1800 with ABS and clutch has 11. I bleed every fall with the annual and amazed at the crud that comes out for a sealed system.

After my run up to ONT and MI I will get a chance to get reacquainted with them.

Thanks for the post, I've read the posts on them also and they do seem like they would work good and i hear a lot of good feed back.
From this forum now I've tried and love Seafoam, Delo Oil, Dyna Beads.
So in the future Progressive springs and speed bleeders.

Chromo.do you not see that just cracking them open a bit and pumping away and actually feel a spongy lever regain pressure is so convenient. I like that I can attatch a hose to the rear caliper crack the bleeder step on the pedal as I fill the reservioor up.no need to stop to refill.

I think we should chip in to get chromo 1 bleeder and make him a veliever

I have returned to the wonderful saunders forum after a 2 year hiatus. I realilzed the grass can never be greener.

Speed bleeders will make your mighty vac work even better. they keep air from coming in around the threads.
