So I just picked up a set of used juicy 5's and have a bleed kit ready to rebleed the system. Do I need to use the syringes (empty) to suck out the dot fluid first, or run some regular fluid through it to flush the system?

Also, I tried searching around, but is there any way to make make the bite point of the juicy 5 more sensitive (I know the juicy 7's have the knob on the lever)?

Thanks in advance...ah btw, what is the best dot fluid to use for rebleeding?

ah...thanks, i've heard that there are ways to overflow the system to make it so the lever less pull before the calipers bite...anyone heard of this?

You can close the bleed screw at the lever and push a little extra fluid in to overflow it...but the avid pad clearance is tight as it is
