Put some mini apes on the scooter. New clutch cable and throttle cables installed. Waiting for the new front brake line (braided) to arrive. Anyone got any tips to make this fast and easy?

You can vacuum bleed them, assuming you have a vacuum bleeder setup. When I put buckhorns on my sporty I bled them the normal way. (pump,squeeze, turn bleed screw) It did not take very long the normal way.

A whole thread for ya HERE
I'm gonna make one of them 'shooters' out of a push cycle water bottle, spare
bleed nipples, tubing, a valve out of a fish tank's air hose and the connection
off a tyre foot pump.
Connect the thing up to a spare tyre for the air pressure to pump in one end,
use the fish tank valve to control fluid flow out the other and into the
system.
Post a pic when I've made it. :D

Harleyhog, I'd be interested in seeing your contraption when it's done. OK, maybe I'd like to make one myself. Can't see paying so much for a tool that I would only use once in a great while.

I'm planning on it costing no more than about £10, about $15 :D
Less if the bits and pieces I've lying around fit together.
Next day off work=daylight to find stuff. :eek:
