I have been trying to bleed the rear Hayes So1e brake. I watched the video floating around the internet and followed it to a T (lever straight up and at the highest point). I have a brake but it is soft. I made my own bleed kit with a similar bottle and fish tank hose. The only thing I am missing is the adatper for the lever. I just let the fluid run out of the lever and can see the air coming out. I did the procedure 3 times until I could see no more air and have very little brake.
My question is - Is the adapter for the lever that important to help stop air from getting back in or do I need to just run more of fluid through the system until it gets hard? I used between 4-6 ounces total for the 3 times I bled the brake.
I appreciate any heads up someone can provide!!
