Just wanted to pass along a simple trick I use when bleeding brakes.

After years of using vacume bleeders, speed bleeders, etc.

I've thrown them all out and use Motion Pro's bleeder check valve.

Very simple tool less than $20 bucks.

However the tip today involves where the brake fluid goes!

Find yourself a large plastic catsup bottle (the ones that sit upside down)

with the squeeze type cap on it.

You'll find that the clear tubing fits perfectly inside the hole and

holds itself upright. No spills or leaks.

Very handy.

I use a Relish one (larger hole) for larger tubing (gear oil/shaft drives) etc.

Just thought I'd pass this little tip along.

Ride safe

I have never done the thing with the catsup bottle, sounds like a fantastic idea to me.

I do have a motion pro bleeder and it works great. I also own a motive products pressure bleeder and I like that even more than I like the motion pro thing. I have adapters for it that fit my brembo brakes and clutch, my truck and my boat trailer. Makes a full flush on any of them a 10 min job. Too bad they dont make one for the Japanese bikes :(.

While bleeding the front brake , do you have too screw down the resevoir cap or can it just sit unsecured ?.
