:waving:Hello and Welcome

Boy oh Boy it seems we all have these problems . I never found a "trick" . I did use a vaccum pump and even thats not foolproof . Some folks swear by " SpeedBleeders". For me I just ended up letting about a pint of fluid gravity feed out the caliper bleeder.....be sure to never let the reservior get to low while doing this . When the air is all gone these bikes have pretty good brakes for there weight . Here is a link for some reading I found with the search function .
