Fuck it's been about 5 years since I last posted in the Workshop forum! ...Probably because it's been about 5 years since I last serviced a bike I looked at the Blackbird and thought yeah, she deserves a birthday. Over a few days though. It desperately needs new tyres - I've been rolling around with canvass showing so it's probably well spent. But today I decided to bleed the hydraulic clutch because it had been too long. Went as per normal - I managed to bleed it while making a colossal mess. All good. Then I thought, Oh, I might as well bleed the brakes while I'm here... :O Man, I forgot just how much of a pain in the arse these dual combined brakes are. Hooee, what a mess. And it's full of air now, and I need more fluid, and better tools, and a vacuum bleeder... You have to fill the callipers with fluid from the centre of the calliper, not the reservoir. Then you have to pump the front lefer to bleed the lower rear calliper... then pump the foot brake while bleeding the front right calliper... Fuck me swinging what a process! I'll have to get to it tomorrow morning with some more tools - and I'll have to get myself a vacuum bleeder.
