    Avid Brake Bleed kit same as Reverb Bleed kit?

    Obviously the fluid is 2.5wt suspension and not DOT brake fluid, but otherwise are they the same size fittings? Looks identical in all the videos and photos I've seen.

    I ask because I have a brand new avid kit here sitting unopened, and I'd rather use that and only buy a bottle of reverb fluid versus buying another of the same pair of syringes and fittings too.

    Thanks for any help!

    They are the same. I've do keep one for posts/forks and another for brakes around though. Just to eliminate the chance of fluid contamination.

    I try the brake kit on my reverb but I can not get it to tread on the seat post (I try the two syringes with the same results)

    What can I do to make them work...??

    After watching the sram video I see what the problem is, in the brake kit the "shaft" on the brass piece is about 6mm long when in the Reverb kit is about 12mm so the brass does not interfere with the seatpost shape..

    Ordering one right now..
