anybody in the area have experience with changing the brake pads, and bleeding the linked system? I hear it can be tricky and have never done it on my X. I need to change brake fluid, clutch fluid and do pads all around. I have all the parts and fluid. Here its a pain though. I would like to do it myself, but here its better to just take it in. Any help would be appreciated. Would like to maybe see If someone out there could help a brother out I would Ideally like to do all the work on my bike myself. I dont really trust the techs at the local shops. Or if I have to take it in, where would yall recommend taking it?
Easy to do pads only take about 1 minute per set, changing fluids is another story but can be done quickly and reliably with an auto brake bleader, I have a" mity vac "and it makes the job so quick and easy, very good investment as you can also do your autos. I would be glad to help if you want to come down to Kenosha.
Greedy, thank you so much for the offer to help, I think I will take you up on it! I would love to learn how to do this myself for the future. 1badta, if ok with Greedy we should have a little tech session! I think it would be fun. Can I get your guy's numbers? pm me! we can set something up!
Greedy is a good guy, I remember you from the old days!! The grill and cold ones may be worth the drive, then you can brake the pads in on the way home
It took me less than an hour to put pads on front and rear, the bleeding may take about the same because you want to be careful with the fluid. When did you want to do it?? Is riding to Greedys some weekend out of the question??
For those of you going to the dells and want my cell just in case.................262 364-6846
