    Hi folks!

    I'm about to change my brake lines on a bike with ABS. Haynes more or less tells me to keep off. Hmf, why did I buy the manual?
    Any good methods out there? Bleeding the ABS-centre?

    Thanks!

    This was easy! I just a vacuum sucker running on my compressor. Changed all the tubes with Steel-braided and sucked the air out of the system. Had to use the under-tank unit to bleed the front. Thanks for links and pat onthe back!:rofl

    Cheers!
