I am about to bleed my Elixir brakes for the first time...I have the Avid bleed kit and have read through the instructions a few times. I am hesitant to use the supplied brake blocks and here's why: The rotors I am using are not the HS1's that came with the brakes, but Alligator Serration rotors, which are a little bit thinner than the HS1's. If I use the Avid brake block, I'm afraid the pistons will be spaced out too far for use with the Alligator rotors I'm using.
Should I skip inserting the brake block and just be real careful about not spilling any fluid? Or should I just use the block anyway?
