Hayes Stroker Trail bleeding
I seeked a new bleeding kit. Park Tool USA said per E-Mail, that this bleeding kit will work with my brakes. The quality and handling of this bleeding kit are good. And it's possible, to bleed my brakes and it was really easy! But I was a little bit disappointed. Against the statement from Park Tool USA, this bleeding kit is in the manufacturing state not compatible with my brakes. The hose compression sleeve was badly deburred, too and one syringe was a little bit leaking at the rubber seal at the piston. Both hoses, which can be screwed in the syringes, has on the other end an connecting. But my brakes needs an end without connecting. Just the pure end of the hose! -So, I had to cut off the connecting with my Bowden cable pliers "Shimano Cable Cutter". I had to fit / put on the pure end of the hose onto the bleed nipple at the caliper. And I had to deburr the hose compression sleeve with a 90° HSS countersink. Otherwise, the sharp edge would damage or cut the hose... The leaking syringe was a little bit disturbing, but she was working and made the job to my satisfaction. Maybe, there was a little bit dust / dirt at the rubber seal. But I've cleaned everything before the bleeding procedure with 99,999% isopropyl and a clean towel. Maybe, the cylinder of the syringe is rough / unround? The catch bottle at the reservoir at the brake lever / handlebar was the original one from the "Hayes Pro Bleed Kit". It accrued a (pneumatical) pressure in the catch bottle because of the hydraulic pressure caused by bleeding the system and the syringes. By lossening the fitting and the hose of the catch bottle in the reservoir after bleeding, the (pneumatical) pressure pressed the old DOT 4 with the air in the catch bottle back into the brake system in the reservoir, so that the bleeding procedure failed... My idea and solution: To prick a little hole in the top of the catch bottle, so that a air ballance is given / possible. After this changes, it was easily possible to bleed my brakes and I'm chuffed.
