Anybody have a mechanical vacuum

Looking to see if anybody has a vacuum system that’s run by a compressor vs hand pump

lots of dirt bikes






just curious, what would you need such a setup for? on motorcycles, a hand pump bleeder is good to get the fluid through the hydraulic system or flush it out, but still need to manually pump the air bubbles out. Or is it for oil changes? like how they do it at the dealerships

sorry for not being helpful

On the Ducati rear brakes you have to remove the caliper and hold the bleeder to the highest point. If you have ABS, you may have to crack the ABS lines to bleed also. PITA is correct.
