Default Pressure bleeder

Can anyone confirm that Motive European Power Bleeder MOT0100 works for X150? Any other suggestions for a pressure bleeder? I am not interested in vacuum bleeders or speed bleeders.

Thanks

Yes, thatís the one I use. I modified the hose with quick disconnects to make it easier to screw on the reservoir cap without dealing with the tubing twisting.

Is that a 1 man job with the pressure bleeder? Or does someone still have to sit and hold down the brake pedal?

One person, no brake pedal. Overfill reservoir with fluid, connect empty bleeder, pump it up to the recommended PSI, connect bleeder jar to caliper bleeder and open bleeder. Pressure will force new fluid in and old fluid out. Light on details, assuming you are already familiar with bleeding brakes.

Thanks for posting.

For several years I've used a cheaper EEZIBLEED which takes pressure from the spare wheel. Same principle but the Motive European Power Bleeder looks way better in both capacity and the simplicity of pumping it up.

Yes, all too familiar.

Thanks for posting, I read the instructions after seeing this. There is a link on their website. Looks pretty straight forward.

Interesting, are you suggesting to use Motive as a fancy air pump connected to the master cylinder with no fluid in it? I guess this will require disconnecting once in a while and adding fluid to the MC. Are you doing this to avoid possible spills from plastic tubes?

Thanks
