Talking Easy way to bleed brakes at last.

Found this on another forum and thought, It's about time, I will tell my buds.

http://www.speedbleeder.com/

Check it out very simple use, all the vulcans seem to use the same size.

I had them on my last bike, loved them. Haven't gotten them yet on this one yet. But I was able to bleed the brakes alone recently. So maybe next time I will plan for it and get them first. But they work as advertised.

Wonderful is the bike a 900 and did you use the SB7100 part number.

Want to confirm before I order mine.

Thanks I managed to cross referance the parts to the mean streak and it is the same part number.

The SB7100S should fit all vulcans.

I wish I could have gotten these years ago but later is better than never.

Ride safe and keeps those brakes in good shape.

mine just showed up, went around the office and got a few for other people here. They even shipped them out the same day I placed my order.

They are neat, another bell ! But ! they don't work too good when the system is full of air. The cheapest way to purge the system is to use a squeeze bottle and it can be used to suck air bubbles or push fresh fluid from the bottom. I prefer the pump however as it is good on any vehicle and can suck or push !
