But air sometimes collects after the master cylinder in the pipe and you can't force it down the pipe to the calliper to bleed it properly. If you loosen the connector in between the pipe and the master cylinder and bleed the 'joint' it sometimes works.

Good luck winks
Or...

Put bike on sidestand and full right lock.

No joy with "Burping the banjo", have tried every method known to man except Mityvac or similar, budget allowed either a Mityvac or a new master piston with spring and cup etc, went for the piston, should've bought the Mityvac.

I'm currently going all old skool on it's ass with this method, tried it once already with no success, try try etc, might just require an amount of patience that frankly I ain't got.

Maybe I need to take it to a Kawasaki dealer, you know just to keep this thread relevant to its location :pmsl
Does the low seat height reflect the low intelligence? Easier to get an asshole onto.

I have a mityvac and provided you keep the fluid reservoir topped up, every fluid change ive ever done has been done first time with no issues.

Just ordered one, has a guage, so will let me see if there's a leak somewhere, fingers crossed.

Mityvac worked a treat, after I removed the master sonicated the sh1t out of it, and resprayed it for the third time. Nice piece of kit actually, it's now going to earn it's keep on the rest of the stable.
