Bleeding new rear master cylinder

Go to solution Solved by Mech,

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Kawasaki Lakota 300 and have to replace rear master cylinder and rear caliper. Does a new rear master cylinder need to be bench bled or bled separately or can I just bleed whole system like a regular brake-bleed? If it does need to be done separately or on bench how would I do this Thanks in advance

I  see no reason  an atv master cylinder ( and wheel  cylinder(s)  can't be bled the same way automotive cylinders are bled.  Fill  master cylinder,  pump up and hold brake and crack the bleed valve. The fun  part comes with some atvs when you need to remove the seat or plastics to access the rear master cylinder cylinder or  bleed valve.

actually did a gravity bleed when i filled it and then took my reverse bleeder and pushed all air out through resavour and worked great I picked up a small reverse bleeder on ebay i used it 2-3 times and works real well only down side i dont like to pour the fluid thats left over in reverse bleed bottle back in the container the fluid comes in  , but as long as bottom  of stem is coverd in bleeder u dont waste much Thanks for relpy

      1996 4x4 Timberwolf rearend width. Can someone with some knowledge of these machines answer this question for me please. Are all 4x4 timberwolves this narrow in the rearend? These tires are so close the right one actually rubs the muffler.  Thinking about seeing if there are any spacers out there for it. I need at least an inch more clearance.

      My friends KQ 300 starts fine and runs, as soon as you put it in gear and try to accelerate its bucks and farts like crazy, not moving... I cleaned carb and it worked good for 1 day... now back to same problem.... could it be such as a bent valve????

      Howdy y'all, I'm trying to fix a neighbors 2015 Brute Force 300. Came in with hard to start and won't idle except on choke issue. I pulled the carb and found the pilot jet as well as the emulsion tube partially clogged. Cleaned up everything, put it back together, still having issues...  It will start right up on choke and will also start off choke if you give it just a touch of throttle but it absolutely will not idle unless it's choked just a touch. Also, excuse my ignorance but I'm assuming the "dial" thingy attached to the carb that turns in and out is for setting idle??

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!

      Have a 1998 AC 300 2x4, Just installed a new carburetor. Engine starts easy but the choke RPMs are very hi and take along time (5-10 mins when cold out). After engine has warmed up choke releases and it idles and runs fine., It does no have an electric choke. The choke lever is never used and it seems like an auto choke? Long story short, how can I lower the choke rpm levels?
      Also, carb came with a spare145 jet, not 100% sure what is installed. Could this impact choke RPMs?
      Any help and information greatly appreciated.
