Help with bleeding ABS system?

Recommended Posts

poida

Hi all,

I've got some new HEL brake lines that i need to install, is there a process to which i need to flush/bleed the ABS system? The Hayes manual states the ABS system needs to be pulsed via the yamaha diagnostic tool, is it possible to do this without the tool?

Any tips to fill/bleed the system? Bike is a 2015 MT-07 ABS.

 

thanks

IIRC you need the Yamaha Code Scanner to "cycle" the ABS system...

You cannot bleed the full system without the scanner or without engaging ABS (with a car I'd just suggest a gravel road, but on a motorcycle that heavily depends on the rider). With that being said, you shouldn't introduce air to the ABS side by just changing the brake lines outside of it. As long as you don't get air into the ABS circuit, then a traditional bleed will work fine.
