You'll either need 2 guys or you'll have to buy a $15 1 man brake fluid change kit. Use google...bleeding brakes is exactly like bleeding brakes on a car. It involves pumping, holding and adding...

The easiest way to change it is exactly like on a car... go to the dollar store and buy a turkey baster... suck out as much fluid as you can, replace with new fluid... then bleed the brakes until you've just about depleted the resevoir, then fill it up again. do it again if you're feeling froggy. I have/use the one man brake bleeder. piece of cake.

Go buy a mity-vac. about $35 and makes it a 20 min job.
Just got one this past summer and kick myself for not getting it years ago.

And make sure that you cover the bike! A friend showed me what that brake fluid can do if it drips on to the fairings...not pretty.

Here's a few choices to help ya do the job: Harbor Freight Tools

I have the $17.99 one listed at the top, works fine real time saver. Especially sine the Nomad needs fluid changes on front brakes, rear brakes, and clutch ;)

ahhhh plato I wish you would have posted this sooner i purchased one similar for $35 just waiting to recieve it.
