Shimano bleed kit - idiot proof

I have a comparable mechanical ability to a pigeon. I successfully managed to bleed my brakes and the next ride I was able to stop before I hit the trees. Good stuff!

Why buy anything else?

This was my second bleed kit from epicbleedsolutions.com and it was just as great as the first. So simple to use with excellent instructions anyone should be able to follow ease. It's beyond me why anyone would use anything else.

Shimano SLX brake bleeding

Far and away the easiest system for bleeding hydraulic bike brakes. I've used two sets now, one for Shimano and another for Hayes. I'm only giving four stars as I find the instructions overly complicated - I just attach both syringes open the bleed nipple and blow lots of clean fluid through from bottom to top taking the air and dirt with it. The instructions seem to achieve the same thing in over ten steps!

Great product that did the job

A bit nervous messing with brake bleeds but the product was well packaged with good clear instructions and worked well. Great price and delivery! Will buy again soon.

QUESTIONS (5)

Do you supply the 20ml threaded master cylinder syringe separately?

Unfortunately at this time we do not sell this item separately. Sorry.

Is there enough brake fluid for both front and rear brakes? Also can I reuse this kit?

We supply 50ml of Shimano Mineral Oil with each Shimano Bleed Kit, this is enough to bleed both front and rear brakes once. If your brake fluid is old and discoloured we recommend flushing the brake lines through twice to replace all old fluid with new, in this case a second bottle of Shimano Mineral Oil will be necessary.

All of our bleed kits are totally reusable as long as they are cared for and properly cleaned after each use. However eventually you may need to replace the syringe/s with new. These are available in our Spares section

How easy is it to clean the kit after each use?

Very easy. When dealing with mineral oil we recommend flushing the kit with clean water and wiping with isopropyl alcohol wipes. Be sure the kit is thoroughly dry before your next bleed. Take a look at our Cleaning Guide for more info.

Does this come with the Yellow Bleed Block spacer? Or do I need to get one?

Unfortunately our bleed kits are not supplied with bleed blocks/piston spacers. If you remove the pads from the calliper during the bleed process (recommended) you will need an object to insert between the pistons to stop them from moving outwards when the brake lever is operated.

Take a look at our Bleed Block Kit or our online guide explaining how to make your own.

Is it possible to leave the wheel on whilst bleeding? With the rotor in place?

You can do it this way, it's certainly quicker and easier. However we recommend removing the pads from the calliper, resetting the pistons and using a bleed block instead to protect the pads from brake fluid spillages.

Also by not resetting the pistons you run the risk of over-filling the brake system with brake fluid if your pads are part worn. This will make changing your brake pads tricky in the future.
