$200+ dollars to bleed the brakes on my K12RS is giving me heartburn.
Common wisdom says this can only be done by dealers with special tools.
Through an off-line conversation with a friendly dealer, I have learned that he only uses the special tools to force the pads apart in the calipers... and that the correct procedure calls for completely draining the system, flushing, refilling and working out the air.... a 4-hour process requiring 4-5 bottles of brake fluid.
I would be interested in knowing some better ways/accepted practices.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
