I have a brake bleeder for my bmw 325i, the connector to the reservoir is little smaller for my R1, but it might work for your bike if it is not R1/R6. If you like you can try it over the weekend. Let me know. Good luck.

i guess what u linked is like a mityvac. i dont plan on spending more then $10-$15 tops because i will not need it anymore after i hook up the lines.

reverse bleeding is what i am planning on doing, like the link you posted. reason for the syringe.
398 985deleted

i already checked walgreens, they didnt have it. i heard like a animal/livestock type shop might carry it, not petsmart type because i already checked. but have no clue of one in sugar land.

tubings i have, i just need something to push the fluids.

i might take you up on that offer sborris, dont know yet. not sure if i can wait till weekend, i dun really mind sitting for 2 hours pumping fluids manually. lol

Or go to a feed store. They sometimes carry large injectors like that for animals. Specifically horse and cattle.

hey jack i have a brake bleeder and a small syrynge i used. if you really want to use the syringe its main purpose in my opnion is to help get the sucking started.

the syrynge isnt required though. i only used the bleeder when i did my SS lines.

The biggest syrynge I found is 60cc/2-oz, it should be enough to bleed the brakes. Let me know.

As mentioned a feedstore would have them. Maybe Tractor Supply. You need one big enough where you don't have to fill it contantly. I've always bled my brakes/clutch with a syringe.

not to familiar with cc sizes. but if it is at least half the size of the picture i posted, should be good enough. did you get a price? are you located in sugarland? thanks for the help

i could just borrows urs arturo, but if it's cheap enough, i dont mind owning one myself.

I live near meyerland area s post oak and orem. I already bought one, since I have to do the same thing you are doing, but I am not in a hurry and you are welcome to borrow it. If you are looking for bigger syringe then this, they can get it but it will take a week or so. I think my R1 reservior hold less then 2oz and the line I dont know, but it should be enough. Anyway this is how it looks.

I was under the impression that one needs to have a perscrition in order to acquire a syringe and would need to get it from a pharmacy?

i meant the hand pump.

what i did is i loosened the bottom bleeder on the caliper and waited until the fluid came out but i helped it out by pumping the front brake. then i took off the rubber lines and routed the new SS lines. i atteched the hand pump to the bleeder on the brake caliper and i added brake fluid to the top resevoir. with the hand pump, i sucked the brake fluid down the lines until i got all the air out and there was a good flow of brake fluid out of the bleeder. finally, i squeezed the front brake (with the pump disconnected) slowly until a good stream came out and tightened the bleeder.

why would you want to push the brake fluid up to the resevior? is that the way they do it on the SV?
