I vacuum bled from all of the nipples 3 times then old school bled them once, then 2 more vacuum bleeds with the Mityvac until I saw clear brake fluid with no bubbles. So I combo bled them. The vacuum is just as good and faster. Nice tool to add for low cost and you can use it on all of your vehicles!Everyone is right! ABS engaging I was really getting hard on that back brake pedal and I just hate that noise and feedback from the ABS activating. Clunking clunk clunk - vibrate your butt. But I was following Mr. TWO Bryan and did 3 hard rear brake stops each activating the ABS pump to get any possible crud out. My rear fluid reservoir appeared to contain a little grit and grayed up a notch.
I guess I never really stomped on my rear brake pedal until the fluid flush. Brake early and 80% front and 20% rears. Use rears to slighlty shed off speed carefully approaching turns and at intersections. So never stomped on rears. Don't think I changed anything.All is well - just my frickin "violent" ABS.
I was surprised because I recently took an MSF 3-wheel course and rode some old Yamaha 300cc cruisers with sidecars and learned proper hard (emergency) braking technique without ABS or locking my wheel up. So the ABS impulse clunking startled me. Bike was perfectly behaved when commuting in today. Smooth braking front and rear.
