I had to change my left rear calipier so my system had to be bleed.First I tried pump,pump,pump then open/close bleeder no dice very soft feel.Next I clamped off the calipiers and pump,pump,pump then open/close bleeder no dice still very soft.Next I tried standing the bike on the rear bumper and gravity bleed better about 65% firm but not perfect (WHAT A PAIN IN THE *SS to BLEED).Called a friend who races amatuer motocross and does his own repairs and up keep to his bikes for advice.He advised me to drain the system completely and open both bleeder screws and push brake fluid through the system with a syringe and some clear hose on nipple of the bleeder screw.This took about 15 minutes and the brakes are perfect.I should have called him first and save myself about 6.5 hours of torture trying to bleed the "normal" way.I thought I would share this to hopefully save someone else from wasting time.

Were you pumping it and holding the break in when you were cracking the bleeder? I've never had a problem doing it that way!

No I put the clear rubber hose directly on the open bleeder screw of the capilier fill the hose and syringe with brake fluid and gently push in the syringe.You will first fill the capilier then the line and last the master cylinder.If you have a small syringe make sure when brake fluid getting low in the syringe to CLOSE the bleeder so no air gets in the system.Refill the syringe OPEN bleeder and continue pushing brake fluid through the system.This method is painless no pumping or nothing as soon as the master start to fill with fluid close the bleeder and put the cap plate on your master and your done!!

Do you open both bleeder valves and fill from one side? Can you fill both calipers for one side?
