I replaced all the brake lines on my 2G, and don't have any fancy speed bleeders. I had zero problems bleeding the old fashioned way at the caliper (clear tube dumping into an overflow container, loosen/tighten bleed screw on caliper when pressing/releasing brake lever). I guess I don't see the point of the speed bleeder, given that I didn't have any problems bleeding either the front or rear brake.
front brakes are the easiest to do. i saw a guy on you tube do it the same way. you move the lever in and out only a quarter of the travel the cylinder has two holes in it and your uncovering them. you can see the bubbles come. also tap the lines at the same time. when no more bubbles pump up and bleed each caliper.
Apparently not for those two in the video.
The only thing I've learned from it is that you have to re-tighten bolts every 500 miles on a shovelhead and 1,100 miles on that bike apparently means having ridden the crap out of her.
After all the wise-cracking he didn't fix the long lever travel, i.e. the brake caliper was still full of air, the fluid level is too low especially with those new pads, and the banjo bolts are leaking, probably because real bikers don't use torque wrenches. Mechanics like him are the reason why I service my own bike.
Or the whole video is a subtle satire on lazy DIY videos. My bad.
