    Magura 2008 and older making a EBT system??? Recomended? Possible?

    Well its come down and I have bought another pair of Magura disc brakes, however they are once again 2008 and maybe a little older. 2008 marked the year I believe where Magura started using the EBT system (Easy Bleed), basically a screw that you can bleed out of. Anyway my thought is...cant I just drill and tap a screw of my own roughly big enough to fit in the bleeding syringe? Of course this would be toward the front of the reservoir cover. There shouldn't be any pressure in the reservoir....

    Magnum, you can not just drill an EBT port because you would also need to modify the bladder beneath also and this may be the hardest part.
    On the EBT Marta's, the bladder is "dimpled" as to allow the fluid to flow past it and through the EBT port.

    The upside is you should only have to bleed them only once.

    Well, I believe your answer should be taken as gospel considering my first reply is from the Magura service center of N. America. One other question though, is there any trick other than having someone else sucking fluid out of the reservoir while I pump more fluid in from the bleed valve?

    Thank you for your reply. I do miss my Magura fork btw..
