No special bleeder needed - except a bleeder banjo bolt at the master cylinder. This easily cured the air problem my V11 developed. The M/C being the high point in the system, the air naturally rises to it. And, need I say...it is "slightly" more accessible than deep in the bowels of the machine. This Ti unit is from RaceTi in the UK. Not all that expensive and very well made.

I've not seen a bleeder on a master cylinder connection before. Could be convenient, I guess.

If I am concerned about air being trapped in a high point of the system there, I just unmount the master and tilt it so the bottom of the reservoir is higher. Air can return to the reservoir that way and get out of the line.

If the battery tray bracket hasn't been lowered, you may want to consider it.

If it's due, bleeding the rear brake at the same time as the clutch.

Cleaning up the main ground above the swing arm inboard of the driveshaft.

I've probably forgotten something.

I think if you search for it,  Docc had compiled a list of maintenance items to do/check whenever the rear wheel is off.

fwiw

Yep, search about four posts back . . . ;)

I had not thought of adding the battery basket drop to the Wheels Off Maintenance Checklist ! :thumbsup:

[edit: Done! Thanks @80CX100 ! ]
