Common Questions About Bleeding Brakes
Q: What’s the problem with trapped air anyway?

Q: Will it work on my vehicle?
A: The tools are not vehicle specific and will work on almost any hydraulic brake or clutch system, even motorcycles, bicycles, RV’s, and ATV’s
Q: Which bleeding method is the best?
A: Reverse bleeding is the most efficient, but often a combination of bleeding techniques gets the best results.
Q: Why does it work so well with ABS?
A: Reverse bleeding uses fluid paths in which ABS valving offers little to no resistance. ABS manipulates braking pressure and then allows fluid to easily return to the master cylinder.
