Brake bleeding.

Post by StoneyMR2 »

Just a quick question, probably a stupid one.

What size tubing do I need to bleed the brakes? Going to "borrow" some from work.

4 or 5mm inside diameter. Try and get the soft silicon type.

Thanks guys. Another stupid question; ignition/engine on or off when bleeding them?

Ive bled them through, no air coming out of any of the bleed nipples but there still very little brake efficiency. What have I done wrong?
