Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

Take my advice and put in a bottle of head gasket repair... the worst that happens is you just spent 25 dollars on something it didn't work... or it may solve your problem

Nah, I told him I filled up the radiator last night and he said that's good, we won't flush it out then, is that okay?
I told him ya just fix the thing. So that's on me, no biggie we just let it run thru.
The air bubble was most likely my fault from filling it up.

Oh always flush the brake system. Always I didn't really think filling the radiator would create a huge bubble like that.

it involves bleeding out the whole system then filling the MC...and you start the process of bleeding each caliper...of course you gotta make sure to never let your MC get empty as you bleed or you'll have to start over lol.
