RedMac Posted May 26, 2011 Share Posted May 26, 2011 So.. I've bled brakes on plenty of other bikes and cars. It all seems pretty straightforward. But this servo ABS on this RT makes me a bit nervous. Just to verify.. is this the proper procedure? http://users.rcn.com/dehager/service/service_abs3.pdf Also.. best brake fluid to use? (Other than BMW, dealer too far away, I'd rather buy locally). In the past for my cars I use Valvoline synthetic. Have to ask that because I remember YEARS ago (more than I care to admit), I did brake flush on my old MG and it uses "natural rubber seals" apparently you had to use a different brake fluid or it corrodes the seals. Ended up having to redo the seals in the entire brake system after that fiasco. I'm a pretty decent wrench and at this point do all my own service (that doesn't require a BMW computer). But the brake thing makes me a bit sketchy. Just want to verify that it is the correct procedure to follow... Note - I have a vacuum bleeder... (mityvac I believe) TIA. Mike Link to comment
