Man, that backfired. I think it turned the dog on.

Great tech article Tom !!! One suggestion however.

Speed Bleeders
http://www.speedbleeder.com/

These work great as long as there is little or no air in the system. I got them along with stainless steel braided lines when I first got my KLR. They have to have some pressure to work properly. 7 bucks or so.

Gray-haired riders don’t get that way from pure luck.
