Shimano brakes not feeling as great as usual? Maybe it's time for a bleed. This Shimano Bleed kit for Shimano mineral oil disc brake systems includes everything you need to refresh your mineral oil-type Shimano hydraulic brakes. Kit includes 50ml of hydraulic mineral oil, tubing and instructions. Fits all Shimano hydraulic disc brake systems, including XTR and XT hydraulic disc brakes.

Note: for 2012 and newer Shimano brakes such as Deore M615, SLX M675, XT M785 and XTR M980 or M985 brakes, you will also require a Shimano Bleed Funnel / Stopper in addition to this kit to bleed the brakes, available here.

      For one thing, jenson is wrong about this product. They say it includes instructions, but the only instructions are warnings such as if you inhale it you'll get diarrhea; so make sure you know what you're doing before you buy it. Another thing to keep in mind is that they also work with Shimano Deore disc brakes (which is what i have). Other than soiling myself from sniffing too much of it, it worked great.

      Well you get the bottle displayed, a small single piece of tubing, and a small square plastic bag. No useful instructions.

      I have the newer Shimano XT (785) brakes which also require a funnel to screw into the resivor (does not seem to be included in any kit), and a syringe to inject the oil into the calipar to push the fluid up through the resivor. Which also doesn't come in any kit I could find. The tubing/syringe can be had at a local hardware store. Any bag/empty bottle/etc will do as it's only purpose is to collect the tiny amount of oil that gets pushed out of the caliper. In short I wouldn't call this a kit. It's a bottle with a small tube, that's it.

      I bled two brakes, after shortening the hose and still have 3/4 of a bottle left. Unsure how many full bleeds you'd get from this but I'd imagine 2 to 4.

      just OK

      Pros

      • Right Amount Of Fluid

      Cons

      • Tough to Install

      Best Uses

        Comments about Shimano Bleed Kit:

        Right amount of fluid and the hose is just the right diameter but the hose is too short -- this makes it far too easy for the hose to pop off the bleed port during operation. A syringe with a longer hose would be a much better set-up. Shimano breaks are awesome but the Avid bleed kit is easier to use than this set-up.

            I used the Shimano Brake Bleed kit to change the mineral oil in two old brake levers. The kit worked great, but it really only good for two to four bleeds. If you are planning on servicing your brakes frequently on multiple bikes, I would recommend a few oral syringes, tubing and the jug of Shimano mineral oil

                          The cost was to much for a little fluid and 25 cents worth of tubing. This is not a kit and has no useful instructions. Find a cheaper alternative or buy the large amount and split the cost with a friend.

                              This is basically mineral oil for the brakes with a piece of tubing which I guess makes it a bleed "kit". Unfortunately, what I didn't realize is that if you have the newer XT brakes you need another "kit" part# SM-DISC that is a funel that threads into the port on the resevoir to bleed the brakes. In any case, Shimano brakes are amazing and the mineral fluid works great but wish I realized that I needed another part to actually get the job done.

                                This bleed kit is a great starter pack to lead up to developing your XTR Brake bleeding skills. My XTR brakes now function alot better since I started using this kit.

                                It is what it is. At [$] you cant really expect too much I guess. shimano brakes are great that they dont use Dot fluid but their mineral oil is sometimes hard to find locally. So I went with Jensons as your items always arrive super fast! Shimano brakes are simple and easy to bleed. This "Kit" is only a smalle squeezy bottle and a 3" piece of tubing to push onto the end. I would prefer a syringe but the bottle works. its a small bottle of mineral oil and good for maybe 3 brake bleeds maybe 4 so you could probably do your bike twice. Im not sure I would call it a kit exactly but it is pretty much all you need and does the job. Better then paying someone else to do it. I would of given 5 stars if a syringe was included as they are easier to pressurise the system and get bubbles out. But go to your local drug store and they sell them for 45c so no biggie.
