  • Help: Vandriver Reservoir question

    Would somebody be willing to tell me if it is ABSOLUTELY necessary to bleed all three hydraulic lines (Front, Rear, Clutch) when installing Vandriver's reservoirs?
    Thanks,
    Pete

    I bleed all of mine to remove all the dark old fluid when I installed my Van reservoirs.

        Yes... you need to. You will get air in the lines if you try to take a short cut and it will not feel right, or even work right depending on the amount of trapped air.

        As Rob said too... you want to get that old fluid out anyway.

        Fluid doesn't cost much and the bleeding process is easy... so bite the bullet and it right!

          Thanks Ghost. You know how it is when you get a big box full of Van ornaments. Just wanna get 'em on NOW and take pictures and ride. Guess I'll just wait 'til the Bremzen (formerly HEL) brake/clutch lines come to delve into the reservoir/bleeding project. Fluid is old, but the bike has only 2400 miles on 'er. Laziness I tell ya...

            I know more than most!

            Wait for the lines, do it all once, and do it right.
