*gay song lyrics*

hehehe this is fun
She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me
of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Sweet child o' mine

Definitely buy the Bleed kit - makes it MUCH more easier!! I've never tried bleeding them without - heck I don't even know if you can do it without the bleed kit.

Bleeding instructions:
** first, make sure you have spare compression fittings and hosebarbs BEFORE cutting any line.
** Cut lines at the lever, not the caliper

Bleeding:
- Fill one bleed syringe 1/2 full with Fluid. Then de-gas (get air bubbles out) the fluid by clamping the syringe off and pulling a vacuum. As you do this, you'll see gas bubbles float to the top. Make sure you're holding the syringe upright. Pull and release the plunger until no more gas bubbles appear. Un-clamp, remove any excess air, then re-clamp this syringe. Leave the other syringe empty and unclamped.

- Attach ½ full syringe to caliper

- loosen lever clamp - just enough to rotate, but not too much so it moves freely.

- position lever parallel to the ground

- attach empty syringe to lever

- position lever at 45 degree

- **Might have to open the lower syringe before doing this** Pull the brake lever completely to the bar and secure with a large rubber band.

- Draw a vacuum at the caliper. i.e. slowly and gently pull the plunger on the caliper syringe to draw a vacuum. Continue to draw a vacuum until no more air bubbles appear in the fluid.

Note: Pulling too hard may allow fluid to by-pass the master cylinder. Keep your eye on the master cylinder reservoir to make sure you don't empty it and draw air into the system!

- When no more air bubbles, close the lower syringe.

- release the lever (take rubber band off)

- Force fluid through the system by holding the lever syringe upright, release the clamp on the
caliper syringe and force fluid through the system into the lever syringe. Do this until the lever syringe is approximately 1/4 full, then re-clamp the caliper syringe.

- with both syringes closed, remove the caliper one and re-install the bleed plug

- Keep the top syringe upright, open it up and SLOWLY squeeze the brake lever halfway to the bar and release 5 or 6 times. This will displace any air bubbles within the master
cylinder into the master cylinder reservoir. If your bleed is right, it should be pretty crisp. You can also do the vacuum thing to make sure all the bubbles are out - but again be carful. While doing this step, you might want to also vary the position of the lever so to move all the bubbles out.

- Position lever parallel to the ground

- close and remove syringe

- top our the bleed hole and close.

- you are done.
