PostSubject: Which front nipple connects to left (rear) lever?   Thu Sep 18, 2014 11:28 am

I've tried searching but cannot find an answer to this - my rear / left / linked brake is spongy and I am going to flush the fluid.

QUestion 1: On the front calliper there is an upper and lower bolt and bleed nipple. Under all the plastic I can't follow which leads to the left lever.

Can anyone let me know which it is?

Question 2: I'm sure I read that you should do the front calliper before the rear. Is this right?

If anyone has any other advice, I'm all ears. I've successfully bled brakes before but not the linked ones.

Thanks

Giles

Shocked Ooo, He said nipple...

The rear brake is the lower bleed valve.

However, it's my experience that the left brake is always considerably spongier than the right (front) brake.

On the Swing you do the front upper nipple first (right hand master cylinder), then the front lower nipple, then the rear nipple ( both using the left hand master cylinder).

Thanks for the information, my nipples are fine and my lever is neither too firm nor too soft . A good night in the garage.

Now awaiting some fork seals, so it's time to get naked tomorrow.
