JIMS® Reverse Brake Bleeding Tool by Phoenix Systems

JimsBleederDo it the right way. Bleed your brakes and hydraulic clutch in reverse!

This patented brake bleeding technology makes servicing and bleeding the brake lines a snap. It’s simple physics: air rises. This tool will push the brake fluid from the caliper to the master cylinder.

No more guess work; you can watch the master cylinder reservoir bubbling out air being removed from the brake system. No more bubbles? The brake lines are properly bled. This tool is for use on all hydraulic brake or clutch systems. Note that some ABS systems will still need a Digital Technician for proper service work. For more information contact Jim at sales@jimsusa.com or visit Jims USA or call 805-482-6913.

    Does anyone have pricing on this? It’s not in their catalog. (don’t say to call… I know to call, just want to get an idea of pricing before I bother them)

    Very old trick. Get a large syringe, fill it with fluid and fill the system from the bleed nipple up. No need to buy an expensive dedicated setup for the once in a while mechanic.

    Unfortunately, air does not rise easily in a brake line. Surface tension holds it in place. Otherwise brake lines would self-bleed as the bike just sat there. As Septic said, this is an old technique (albeit, automated somewhat) using a turkey baster and hose. However, it still depends on the angle of the brake caliper. If the brake line is not at the very top then there can still be air in the caliper requiring conventional old-school bleeding by applying the brake and compressing the caliper cylinder(s).

    This technique is also a bit messy when flushing out the lines since you will need to siphon the rising fluid out of the brake reservoir.
