    will a reverb bleed kit work for Forumla RX brakes?

    I've got an extra, clean Reverb bleed kit. I think I need to bleed my Forumla RX brakes (they seem to require a more force at the lever than they used to after about 1 1/2 years).

    Anyhow, the kit I have looks a lot like the one in the pictures here:

    Just to make sure I don't accidentally screw things up - can anyone share any experience with this?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    I've used those fittings to bleed other Formula brakes but never the RX. But i've got to imagine they use the same fittings.

    Did this ever work? I'm having problems threading a reverb syringe into an RX lever. I think I might have stripped it
