    Use whatever method and equipment you are comfortable with on car brake systems. The principle is the same.
    Austin, TX area
    Many bikes and trikes since 1955, mostly BMWs. Currently looking for a motivated seller with the right Airhead.

    Default Bleeding Breaks

    Left, right, Frt. pump up until the petal is up and open your bleeder let the air out. Keep doing this until you see no bubbles. Hook up an clear plastic tube on bleeder. Use box wrench on Bleeder. Frt break is still in the system. Make sure the reservoir is always full. Don't expect a firm break pedal it will be a little soft. JMO
