    Avid DIY bleed kit

    Anyone make their Avid bleed kit? I use a vacuum pump to bleed my car brakes and I think it'd work better then the syringes and wouldn't cost so much. I guess I really just need to know where to get some of the correct bleed fittings. I haven't found where to buy them separate from the kit.

    Yup. Dirt cheap too.

    Considering how small the brake system is, I wouldn't bother with a vacuum pump. But if you try it, post how it goes.

    Thanks for the link. I have a vac pump and it seems that it would be easier to pull new fluid through the brakes then using the syringes.

    The syringes you can get from a pharmacy cheap. Just be upfront with them and they will sell them to you and not give you the eye-ball thinking you are a druggie.
