    Avid Juicy Bleed Blocks...

    I am about to bleed my Juicy 7's and I noticed that on my 2009 Avid bleed kit there is a red bleed block and a black bleed block. The red bleed block is thicker than the black one. Both say MY08 Juicy 5,7,CRBN,ULT.

    Which one should I use for my 2007 Juicy 7's? Maybe one goes in the back and one in the front?

    Thanks

    I guess whichever one goes in and forces the pistons apart the most? I have red ones for a 2005 7 kit. However, I never had them on me when needed, so I folded an index card several times, flattened it, and shoved it in between the pads to keep them apart.

    I just did some research and it seems the thicker (red) bleed block is the best choice as it will stop me from overfilling the system compared to the black one.

    Thanks JC!

    I had to use the black bleed block as the red one would not fit in even when I reset the pistons/flushed excess fluid out. I guess it's meant for Juicy Ultimate...
