Bleeding Shimano SLX Breaks


Recommended Posts

  • I bled my slx brakes by draining all the fluid out, then using a syringe and tubing to push fluid up from the caliper until air bubbles stopped coming out of the reservoir.
  • Make sure you have the correct sized philips screwdriver for the reservoir cap, I stripped my screws and ended up breaking off the head of one (yippee 2012 slx brakeset just arrived).
  • Also, remove your brakepads and fill the gap between the pistons with a spacer.
  • Don't let the mineral oil run onto your gear cable/ferrules, it could ruin them. It will ruin your brake pads so make sure none of it gets on your rotors.
  • I read the shimano pdf posted by the drongo and watched a few of the videos on youtube before doing anything.
