Bleeding the hydraulic brakes on your motorcycle is something you have to do every once in a while. Usually, you can do it every two years, but I personally just wait until the brake lever or pedal feels mushy. This can take two years, two and a half years, or more time or less depending on a number of factors.
Bleeding your brakes is easy and the guys at Motorcyclist Magazine put together a pretty good video to show you how to do it. Take a look.
If you're interested in purchasing the Motion Pro mini brake bleeder he mentions in the video, check out the button below. It runs about $25 but it's worth the money and makes the job a lot easier.
