Bleeding Brake Oil Question!

04 gsxr 600. I tried to change the brake oil since i just change the pads, was suggested that it would be a great idea and it was well due.

As i was bleeding brake reservoir, there are 2 volves (nipples ). Do i have to bleed both of them? I bleeded one (upper front one) and made sure it was well drained. I mean with the exception of cleaning out the other valve as well. Would it matter to bleed from the second nipple as well?

p/s: After changing the rear brake pads and brake oil. My rear brake doesnt feel that great. Any idea or suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

if your trying to remove all the brake fluid, yes crack all the bleeders open. (MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT BRAKE FLUID) should say on your resevoir what type of fluid it takes. now your rear brakes.......after you replaced the pads and fluid did you pump them up several times? if it doesnt feel hard after muiltple pumps try bleeding them. if that doesnt work check for leaks.

Just bleed!!! A slight burning smell is normal with new pads, but it should go away. If your trying to bleed the rear brakes, just pump the brakes, then crack open the rear nipple(make sure you have a tube or something to direct fluid elsewhere. Close the bleeder valve and then repeat until pressure feels right.

They need to be bled out. Instead of bleeding at the nipple, bleed them from both banjo bolts. Then go back and bleed at the nipple. If you drained the lines, there is usually air pockets built up at the highest points in the line (where the banjo fittings are).

This is how i bled my brake lines. Dont call me stupid, i tried!

i opened the brake cylender, and starting pourning new oil into it, opened one (higher front) nipple and kept pumping through brake pedal untill i flushed all the dirty oil and saw clean oil coming out. then i screwed tight the nipple valve and put back the lid on oil cylnder. After that i pumped the break to build pressure again.

For a little bit break worked ok (not good at all) but now i feel there is no pressure in there...

what side of town are you located at? and its cylinder not cylender, and pouring not pourning, and wtf is this nipple your talking about? you mean the bleeder? and you dont pump the levers when you have the bleeder open . when you pull the front brake lever, open the bleeder. before you release the lever close the bleeder and repeat the process several times

Its pump pump pump bleed. After you pump the lever hold it down and crack the bleeder. Dont let the lever up till the bleeder is closed. Pump the lever than bleed the banjo bolt at the master first. Do it several times and them move to the rear bleeder. Its a pain in the to bleed at the banjo due to space for the wrench.
