    I bought one of these power bleeders for mycar and man, bleeding it was a snap.

    any feedback on how this works with our Brembo brakes and what cap adaptors we need? At first glance it appears we need 2 different ones for front and rear.

    Guess I'll be the idiot this time.............

    Why do we need a special tool? If it was faster and better then the Dealers would use one. $100 US? For the car I call a friend cause a few beer is cheaper.

    However, the REP ROM does describe the process for using one but doesn't list any special tools or adapters so I can't help there. The only special tool listed for brakes is the front cap release tool.

    For the bike you'll need it once every 2 years. Do it manually and put the $100 in the tank. :1drink

    YMMV

    bought the unit for my semi-track car so am doing regular flushes anyways, the question was not whether or not I should buy the unit, the question was has any one bought the brembo adaptor and does it work on our bikes....you know what they say about opinions......
