    My Capo rear brake bleeding issue was solved completely by replacing the bleeder screw with a Russell Speed Bleeder. I suspect the OEM bleeder screw was simply - well - not great. I had tried the tread wrapping, sealing, etc. At the end of the day a simple screw did the trick.

    Okay so first time bleeding clutch, no succes. Clutch had good pressure. But slave was leaking. So replaced the seal. Cleaned everything. And put bew tygon clear tube from MC to resevoir and new double wired springs. Filled the slave and pushed in the piston carefully. Tilt to the right and forced in. Steer to right and MC loose. Put some more dot4 in the resevoir. And did some cycles of pushing the piston back and forth. Some bubbles came out. Some more. Then flicked the lever and tapping ob the lines. Didnt see any more bubbles. So I bolted the slave. But almost no pressure...
    Took the right hand side clutchcover off to see how much it would disengage. But it was a tiny bit on the last of the stroke. Tried this method a few more times with no luck.

    So I think there still must be air in the system. Or the mc must suddenly be broken.

    One more thing, while In installed the new hose to resevoir. I had to use some force to get it on the tube of the mc. So maybe the rubber (no.11) is letting air in?

    Okay did some reverse bleeding today. (Got a syringe today) and I got more air out. Have a firm lever now. Could not test it yet. Because the mufflers get rebuilt.

    I have read through the numerous ways to bleed the rear brake and all have their good points and can be a bit fiddly . So today I decided to bleed rear brake and had a eureka moment on how to stabilise the calliper so instead of hanging it off the can bolt hole it can be bolted to the bottom foot peg with an M8 x 2" / 50mm and two locking nuts making it much easier to secure the caliper and lock it into any position 1 & 2 as previously described by KZmilli. Firstly remove all the
    necessary parts, exhaust can, brake line retainer and new to this method the foot rest.

    Once the bolt and nuts have been installed as per picture, the nut closest to the frame is locked tight then the other nut can be locked off to position the caliper to any angle with enough slack for the brake line. tried this and worked perfect. Happy bleeding

    Thanks SD, not wishing to take any credit for all the great inspirational work done by others but this method allows one person to easily bleed the brake.

    Understand. It's an evolutionary thing. Wish I'd thought of it!
