I am trying to bleed my front brakes but there isn't any fluid in the calipers. How do I bleed them without the vacuum bleeder?

hard to explain but let gravity start the process for you , just crack the bleed port till fluid starts to run from it , then do the normal bleeding stuff

1. First, put your mouth on the bleed fitting.
2. Second, suck real hard until you get a bad taste in your mouth. :bird: Just kidding.

I've tried before to bleed brakes systems with new lines, etc. with absolutely no success...but that probably has more to do with no patience than anything else.

Go to autozone or advanced and buy a Mighty Vac...it is one of the best tools you can buy for under $30.00. I use mine all the time on cars and bikes. Takes away the need to have someone there pumping and holding....pumping and holding...pumping and holding... :waytogo:

You have to let grav do the work. I had to rebuild the entire brake system on my yzmzha yz and it was hard to rebuild pressure. Only after the line had filled with fluid will it work.
