This kit comes complete with everything you need. The directions are clear (watch the videos also). The biggest problem with this setup is the tubing that leaks air past the barbed connectors. They need to fit tighter. The syringes are a little awkward to use also. Avid could step up the quality by using an automotive style bleeder that won't leak air (ie: "Mityvac" style pump). Degassing and subsequent bleed would be more consistent, reliable, and faster. If you have patience, this kit will be adequate.

        Comments about Avid Disc Brake Bleed Kit:

        The Avid bleed process requires pulling the syringe to create suction on the hydraulic system to pull air bubble out, when doing this, air would enter the syringe around the flexible tubing. I worked around the problem by putting zip ties around the tubing, but they could really use tighter fittings or small hose clamps.

        Worked well, didn't come with any Instructions, but avid has a tutorial up on YouTube that explains everything well. Only downside is it tends to leak at bit at the hose connections,

        follow the directions and you will get results, just don't apply to much pressure to the syringe, air will get past the seals and you'll have to start over. used this on my avid hyd. brakes. second time got the results expected.

            Easy to do, takes time and patience. Can be messy, have ample clean rags handy. The plastic lines between the syringes and the insert need to be a bit longer in order to clamp while holding syringes uprights, tend to crimp. Could also need just a bit more fluid for the job since there will be leaks and waste.

            The kit worked a spec'ed. I'd never actually bled brakes before, but after watching the Avid Video online and reading the instructions it was pretty straight forward. Just be careful not to squirt the fluid out of the syringe. The Dot fluid is corrosive.

                  This kit has everything you need to bleed your brakes. I prefer Shimano over Avid brakes, but that's beside the point. Only negative is the price - quite a bit of cash for several pieces of plastic and a few oz of "special" fluid.

                          Though the product did what is was designed to do, Bleeding Avid Brakes the design of the syringes tubing between the syringe and the fill nozzle was substandard and short. I am going to have to find replacement tubing that is better quality and longer.

                              Seems to have the components for all avid brakes, but I have only used it on Elixer. I had trouble with the plastic tubing leaking air into the fluid when under vacuum which kind of defeats the purpose. I had to use small zip ties on the tubing over the brass fittings to get a better seal. Then it worked fine.
