Front Fork quick bleeder valves
« on: July 30, 2014, 07:38:17 AM »

I have just installed front fork quick bleeder valves onto my new 2014 Zero S.
They are available fromworksconnection.com.
Order model #26-300
Make sure the front wheel is off the ground before bleeding.
NEVER hit these valves while the front wheel is down.

What does a quick bleeder valve do and why do you not want to open it while the front wheel is on the ground? 

The Zero is the only motorcycle that I have ever owned with a air bleed screw and I have never missed having one before.   ???

frodus, he's talking about a quick FORK bleeder valve, not a brake bleeder valve.
