I use mine all the time and love it. I had to remove all the 8MM bleeder valves and wrap the threads with a couple turns of Teflon tape (have someone else hold their finger over the caliper hole as that nasty fluid sometimes runs out a little:joke. Don't wrap near the last couple threads on the insertion end as you do not want to get any little pieces of Teflon tape into the system :22yikes:. All my 10MM bleeder valves had some kind of sealant on their threads and worked fine with no air leaks :thumbup:.sounds like a decent deal, has anyone here actually used one on a GL1800 ? does it work good ?
See my above comments."I had to remove all the 8MM bleeder valves and wrap the threads with a couple turns of Teflon tape (have someone else hold their finger over the caliper hole as that nasty fluid sometimes runs out a little:joke.

Yes you need to remove and seal the bleeders if your using a Motion Pro valve, so............if your going through the trouble to remove them, why not replace them once with Speed Bleeders and be done with it? They cost more but the benifits far out way the cost and you never have to hassel with the Motion Pro valve again. :yes1:
The Motion Pro is cheap but you get what you pay for in life. Speed Bleeders are so much easier theres no comparison. If you ever use a Speed Bleeder..............you'll throw the Motion Pro check valve in the trash.
OK ...........I'll admit I still have my Motion Pro valve. I just don't use it anymore since I put Speed Bleeders on all of my bikes. Seroiusly..............Speed Bleeders are a No Brainer once you've used one and see just how fast and trouble free the bleeding process is with them. You will have long forgotten the cost of them soon after you buy them, but you see and appreciate the benifits of them everytime you bleed your system.
"Every time I bleed the brakes I replace the suction tube with about 9" of new tubing. Each time I finish bleeding from a valve, I cut off about 3/8" of the end as it has stretched and I never want one to pop off the valve (yes it happens ). "
I use a small hose spring clip over the end of the tube on ANY bleeder fitting. It's never come off.
"I still use a MityVac for the clutch . "
Use a Speed Bleeder and just pump the fluid out with the clutch lever.
Works as good as anything. Simple, works on cars, bikes, etc. Used one for years.This one also works, but the bottle is quite small.
Saved me a bit of work while on vacation without all my tools.
I don't want any speed bleeders and have heard of them failing (not fully sealing with the spring loaded ball).See my above comments.
