I just got my first FS bike and I really like it. It comes with the Hayes HFX-9 HD disk brakes.
The problem is that I imported the bike from the US to Iceland and on the way over here the brake pads in the rear brake fell out of the caliper. As I was starting to assemble the bike my friend pulled the brake lever and the piston went too far out of the caliper and leaked. I dont know how much fluid leaked but maybe 8+ drops. Now I need to bleed the system but I havent got any tools to do it with. My LBS does not sell any hydro brakes so no help from him.
So I need help/info on how to bleed the system "getto" style.
ps. this is my first disk brake so I dont know that much.
