Using Patriot II to Bleed Brakes

Anyone ever try using the braking system for their toad when bleeding brakes? The monitor has that button to press brakes manually and I was thinking it might be easier then doing the 1 man routine of running back and forth between the caliper and brake pedal.

I bought this insanely cheap (like $9) one-man brake bleeder kit from Autozone, and I was extremely skeptical if it would work or not.



Turns out it works like an absolute champ. It takes a second to set it up for your caliper type (I just used one hose with one "probe" on it). the magnet mount bottle attaches somewhere convenient, stick the needle-like probe into the brake bleeder hole, open the bleeder and slowly pump the brakes.

It will pump all the air out and capture the fluid in the bottle.

Well worth the money. I used it every time I have to bleed brakes now.
