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.

        It gets the job done for a decent price. There are better and worse products out there, so this is good for the once a year brake bleed.

          Comments about Shimano Bleed Kit:

          Used it to bleed my brakes when I changed the pads.

          It got the job done, but was a bit messy and difficult to install the tube. while squeezing the bottle, oil escaped.

          A syringe model would be more effective and a better investment.

          Comments about Shimano Bleed Kit:

          It's not really a kit since you also need the funnel to do the job. I definitely recommend using the Shimano oil tho. I used another brand last bleed and on long downhills, I could feel the oil expand as the levers had less and less travel. With Shimano oil, the travel remains constant even when hot.

          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
