    How did the brake bleeding go?

    I was talking to a buddy about this and one of the problems with bleeding the front brakes is the master cylinder is up high and the lines go down hill to the calipers. You're trying to get the air out the bottom but the bubbles want to float back to the top. I believe that's why they have a bleeder on the master cylinder on newer bikes.
    Anyhow. I was thinking one other way to be sure the air is getting out of the lines would to remove the calipers and set them up high on a bench or something and put a spacer of some kind to hold the pads apart. (sheet of ply wood, stir sticks, screw driver, whatever you have on hand.) Then bleed them in the same order we talked about.

    Having the calipers up as high or higher than the master cylinder will ensure that the bubbles won't float back up the line between lever pumps.
