I responded to a post earlier about brakes on a CIH 885. I agree the expense is the labor. My question has to do with bleeding the brakes. The manual says pinch the drain tube from the resevoir and open one side bleeder valve then hold that side pedal half way down and pump the other pedal. Repeat for opposite side. The dealer mechanic said don't pump the brakes just let them drain til no air comes. Could take a long time. What do you recomend?

Phil, I do it as your mechanic recommended. The issue is that your oil is leaking out the brake orings and emptying the little plastic reservoir under the battery above the master cylinders. I do understand the logic behind the book method as the equalizer line is open when the pedal is depressed and fluid from the working side will cross to fill the empty side, I use that method on Case BH/LDRS that use a similar MC. mEl
Thanks, I'll have to get my reciepts out from last year to see what they did. They were supposed to have replaced o rings but maybe it was just on the left side. My right brake is the one giving me the trouble.
