I went to mount and bleed my GSXR brakes on my V-Strom yesterday and am having a hell of a time bleeding them. I'm using a vacuum bleeder. I had 4 piston R1 brakes on my RZ350 and it wasn't a problem at all. Any special tricks?
Thanks,

I'll give you a good suggestion...prefill the calipers as much as possible through the bleeder screw(use an ear syringe), hook up all the lines and such, fill the master cylinder to the top, then crack the bleeder screws...and let it sit over night. Let gravity do it's thing for a good 8-10 hrs. In the morning, top off the master cylinder and bleed as normal. Don't worry if your master cylinder runs empty over night...as you're bleeding them anyway.

BTD.

Double wrap the threads on the bleeders with teflon tape. Works like a charm. Says to do this in the directions with the Mityvac.
