I finally got to bleeding the brake lines on the F800. It’s not that difficult when you come down to it, but I have to spend an extra hour and onces of DOT-4 fluid re-learning the process.

Since the brake lines aren’t transparent I keep forgetting the simple fluid law that BUBBLES GO UP. I had the bike and hydraulic line verticle, but I forgot to make the hand levers verticle. Lesson re-learned!

Just took a leisure 10 mile mainenance ride burning out the new rear pads today during lunch, felt great!
