This is an affordable kit, if you have read some reviews they probably say to buy the master kit. I will agree with that. This kit is great for getting started and gives you the bleed adapters needed for just about all Hayes brakes. However the bleed bottle in the kit is too small. Very hard to keep pressure going through the system with such a low volume bottle. I gave it 3 stars only because it did come with a majority of the adapters I can put to use immediately. I'd recommend researching the internet on brake bleeding and see if there are better alternatives out there. Again this is not a bad kit, just there are better choices out there.
well i had a heck of a time when the piston got stuck crooked but after i tried that i jamed a peice of cardboard between em so they wouldnt come out all the way after i tried it like that it worked better than my other one done in a bike shop
The cap broke on me- the cap was screwed on snug but not tight! as i was squeezing and releasing the bottle i was getting some seepage and noticed that the cap has broken.....I used a syringe from my dentist to finish the job!!
The Hayes Bleed Kit is definitely not worth the extra money. You would be better off to get a master cylinder bleed screw and just the needed dot 4 fluid. The kit comes with directions and a bunch of small pieces, but the directions are for the Hayes mag brakes and not for anything in the new Stroker line of brakes. Find the directions using a youtube video from Hayes. Doing the actual bleed wasn't to hard, but the tube that Hayes includes gets super slippery once brake fluid goes through it making slip off easily which makes a mess. Also, this kit doesn't include a catch contain and Hayes just assumes you will/can make your own. I would save my money and make/acquire parts to make my own bleed kit instead of what Hayes calls a kit.
PROS: Includes Plenty Of Fluid
CONS: Unclear Directions, Mystery Parts, No Directions
