I've come across the EZE BLEEDER on line. It seems to be the answer to my belief that I could get a better results by pushing the air bubbles 'up hill' towards the master cylinders both front and rear. Reading the reviews for the bleeder, I came across a note that it may not be wise to use the reverse bleeding on an ABS equipped BMW as it might distort the ABS seals. I have a 2002 GL1800 with ABS. Does anyone know for sure if I can safely use the EZE BLEEDER on my Wing?
Thanks,
Sequimbiker:?

Reverse bleeding is only used as a last resort, when normal bleeding fails. In the early days of the forum some members used a syringe to reverse bleed Goldwing brakes and clutches.

I still like gravity and patience, leave the bleed nipple open and just let it drain through. The tough part is not to let the reservoir empty.

My MP3-500 requires reverse bleeding for the Hydraulic Tilt-Lock System... It was so easy and sucessful, that I'm going to try it on the wings next. I used a syringe

Thanks for the replies. I bought a 35cc syringe at the Farm and Feed store and some plastic hose for $3.00 and will try that soon.

One thing to remember with reverse bleeding is that you'll be forcing any crud in the system through that tiny bleed back port in the master cylinder, perhaps plugging it.

One person bleeder, much cleaner way to bleed brakes.

It is a pressure bleeder, rather than a vacuum bleeder

Nice thing about it, is you can use it on every vehicle you own.

I like the idea of using a garden sprayer, the pump type, then fill it with brake fluid,

Next make a plate, like the cover for your Brake master, with a fitting in the middle,

A different Brake master cover can be made for every vehicle you own.

I have a mighty vac., and it is a two person job.

Where as the garden sprayer is a one man deal. No more begging the wife to help me.

the garden sprayer hose hooks up to the fitting on the brake master cover.

Pump the garden sprayer about 10 times.

then go to the brake crack loose the bleeder and the pressure in the garden sprayer pushes the brake fluid through the system.

You never run out of brake fluid, using this method

This uses a different pump but same idea.

I initially used a syringe then once bled installed speed bleeders. Best money I've spent. About $7 each, bought 4 (3 brakes and 1 clutch) Fantastic! Now it's a one man job done in just a few minutes. And since it's so quick and easy I tend to flush more often (yearly).
