    Elixer Bleed Question

    First time doing system bleed. On the front I followed directions and no problems.

    On the rear i neglected to fully screw out the pad contact adjuster before bleed. Should I re bleed system or not ?

    I'm not sure of the effect of not screwing out pad contact. Initially i thought I would just see how the brake performs but should I re bleed following proper procedure ?

    Thanks. Wanting to do it correctly I opted to re bleed before I saw your post. Had a moment of terror. I was bleeding the caliper and suddenly fluid all over the floor. Yup,
    I forgot to put in the bleed block ! Caliper came out of place. Got a bit worried but placed it back in place, pressed in with wooden paint stirrer and finished bleed.

    Good to go ! New experience and learned alot.

    Again, appreciate your reply.
