Used the bleed kit for 2012-on this morning, did it in 2 hours going carefully. Definitely beats taking your bike to a shop or the official stuff, both of which are more expensive too.
One trick I found is to pre-fill the lever syringe with around 10ml of fluid, then draw back through the caliper syringe before your start going the other way. Helps to pull any caliper air bubbles or ones that have formed at the connection out and into your big syringe reservoir before you start pushing fluid up and burying them deeper.
Fantastic product, made the whole process a doddle.
Absolutley fantastic product brilliant service will absolutley recommend to all my biking buddies just wish it came with a sticker for my bike.
Ordered Shinamo brake bleed kit - made job I used to dread a breeze and no mess!. Great kit, good price and excellent deliver time - Many thanks.
It was soooo easy to use your kit to bleed my XTR's. I'll be referring everyone I know that has hydraulic brakes. Thanks again and keep up the great work .. Joe
Having bled a couple of car brakes, I did not have any knowledge in mountain-bike brakes bleeding before yesterday. This kit, along with the perfect instructions, enabled me to do it really quickly and easily!
The only thing I regret now is not having bought an extra bottle of oil, because I used half of the one included in the kit and I'll have to pay shipping costs to France again to buy a new bottle.
Our Pre-2012 Shimano Bleed Kit contains all you need to bleed your M486 brakes.I have Shimano M445 brakes. Do I need the Pre-2012 or 2012-on bleed kit?
Since the M445 brakes use the new style master cylinder bleed port you will need our 2012-on bleed kit which includes our master cylinder syringe and adaptor.I have Shimano BL-M505 Levers & Shimano BR-MM446 callipers. Which bleed kit will I need?
Our Pre-2012 bleed kit will contain everything you need. The BL-M505 levers have a removable reservoir cap and do not have the newer-style bleed port therefore our master cylinder syringe and adaptor are not needed.I have a set of Shimano M486 brakes from 2010. Will your Pre-2012 Shimano bleed kit be enough?
Yes it will. Our Pre-2012 Shimano Bleed Kit will contain everything needed to bleed the M486 brake set.I wondered if you're able to supply the 20ml threaded syringe for Shimano systems on its own?
Unfortunately at this time we do not sell this item separately. Sorry.What kit should I buy for Shimano Alivio BR-M445 disk brakes?
For your BR-M445 brakes you will need our 2012-on Shimano Bleed Kit.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 sectionCan you tell me which kit I need to bleed Shimano XT M785's?
You will need our 2012-on Shimano Bleed Kit.Can you advise on the best bleed kit for Shimano BR-M535 brakes?
Our Pre-2012 Shimano Bleed Kit will be just fine for your M535 brakes.I have Shimano SLX BR-M665. Will your Pre-2012 bleed kit work?
Yes, the Pre-2012 Shimano Bleed Kit contains all you need.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.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.Is the Shimano M395 a pre 2012 or post 2012 model?
Unsure on when these first came to market, however you will need our 2012-ons Shimano Bleed Kit to bleed these brakes as they have the newer-style master cylinder bleed port.I have Shimano BR-M575. Which bleed kit will I need?
You will need our 2012-on Shimano Bleed Kit.For Shimano Zee brakes will I need the 2012-on bleed kit?
