Proceedures For flushing brake fluid front dual caliper system DL 650 17 model

What are the details on how to flush and refill the brake fluid when 2 calipers exist
in the system. Special tools involved ? Specifically the 2017 DL 650.

I have a pressure bleeder but not sure how to hook it up on a 2 caliper set up.

Any help would be great. jake

You said pressure bleeder - as in this forces new fluid back up the system from the caliper to the master cylinder? You would suction out the old brake fluid from the master cylinder or at least some of it (with a pressure system). Attach the bleeder to the brake caliper farthest from the master cylinder so new fluid forced into the system thru the bleed nipple will flow up the hose to the other caliper then up to the master cylinder.

Look up reverse bleeding on youtube there are lots of videos. You'll need a big syringe (available at any farm and fleet store or online) and a section of 5/16 ID poly hose (available at any home center)


When bleeding brakes always start with the caliper farthest away from the master cylinder. On motorcycles this is typically the front left then move to the front right.


Inexpensive Prestone brake fluid ($3.50 for a 12 ounce bottle) from Walmart in the right DOT is all you need. Just because its inexpensive doesn't mean its not good.
