Speed Bleeders
Well, my speed bleeders finally arrived. I got them installed on the rear brake and the clutch slave cylinder. They work great. I bled the rear brakes and the clutch in a matter of minutes once they were installed. I still have 2 more to put on the front brake cylinders but I'll wait until I have some more time to take off the GL1500 rotor covers. It worked out good for the rear brakes. I had the tire off to have a leaking valve stem replaced. It was leaking at the rim. I was putting the tire back on and thinking to myself how nice it would be to have those speed bleeders while I had it apart. I decided to wait until today to put the saddle bags back on, as it was late last night when I got the wheel back on. I was sitting around last night and my parts guy called and told me they had arrived. They are definitely a worthwile investment. My clutch seems to work better now.

Unless I'm mistaken, he is speaking of a type of bleeder that is like a one way valve when you loosen them....you can push fluid through them to bleed the system, but they won't suck air back in when you let off the pedal or brake lever. Very useful for bleeding brakes or a hydraulic line without a helper. A lot of DIY guys use them on cars.....

I got mine from a Motovan dealer in Canada, but in the US you can order them direct from <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.speedbleeder.com/">http://www.speedbleeder.com/</a><!-- m --> All Honda's take the 8 MM X 1.25 bleeders.
