"A vacuum bleeder really shines with coupled or linked brakes. Harbor Freight or Amazon lists these tools."

This man knows whereof he speaks. I bought a Pittsburgh brand Pneumatic Brake Fluid Bleeder at Harbor Freight for $25. DOT 4 brake fluid was $5.00. Bled the brakes in under half an hour. Super easy.

Just be sure you use plenty of painter's tape and/or old rags snugged around the brake reservoir. I've heard if you spill brake fluid on the tupperware things can get ugly.

Brake fluid does indeed eat some paint and plastics. Also if you're new to rolling your own on brake bleeding be sure to use the appropriate brake fluid. The required type is Dot 4 in the US. The correct fluid number is molded into the top of the reservoir lid.
