I hang the syringes with strings from the ceiling and let stand for hours so all air bubbles will dissipate. Seen this on bicycle bleeding they pump back and forth 4 times from the slave side of course not letting air into the system this gets all the bubbles out. Make sure the master is positioned so no air be can trapped in it I also hanged the master. Sorry bleed foot pedal first that was no problem got right the first time.

Thanks mate.

Ive got the bike leaning over to try and prevent any low points. Lever zip tied to the bars. Im quite sure i have the caliper to foot master sorted. It has to be between the foot master and hand master. Ill keep that as is overnight (9pm here atm) and see how it goes. Back and forth bleeding makes sense!

On the Rekuse broken plunger till I found that bleeding was hit or miss. The plunger move around working then 1/2 not working at times but all sorted now.

Bleeding can be a pain. I use a syringe and push from the caliper to the MTB lever. Step 1 is make sure the caliper itself does not have air in it by loosening the banjo bolt and back bleeding. Always good to make sure your syringe tube that you attach to the bleeder nipple is completely full of fluid with no bubbles. Next is loosen the foot master banjo bolt and get the foot master bled (I use rags to catch the brake fluid). I found it worked well to have the foot master completely full of fluid when I put the banjo to LHRB adapter in and don't put in the banjo bolt yet. Then banjo bolt and tighten down. Make sure the lever is in a position that prevents air being trapped in line loops (I usually take the lever off the bars and rotate it upright with the cover off) and also make sure the bypass is always covered by fluid and won't suck any air back in. Then runs lots of brake fluid through it, stop and see if lever is still soft, repeat etc. I've also had luck after major bleeding is done to keep the cover off the lever and watch as repeatedly pulling it in. Usually I see some tiny bubbles come up through the fluid for a little while and then stop and then get a harder lever.

Clake sells just the adapter separately for the foot master for a very reasonable price. Rekluse sells one too but charges a fortune for it or makes you buy the Hayes MTB lever with it. Several times I had to make my own banjo bolt that would mate up with the smaller banjo fitting from the MTB lever line. You can get -3 an to -2 an adapters that work for some of the MTB lines.

Dot 3, 4, 5.1 are suitable Brembo of course. I wonder if the seals can be changed in the Maugra to suit?

Dot 5.1 with 5he highest boil rating of course.
