I am doing my first brake bleed on the dent style brake cylinder and I reviewed the wonderful Power Republic video.
Question 1: I always thought to bleed the brakes you would have the reservoir closed when the nipple is open or else it would pull in air but on the video that’s not the case….?
Question 2: I will be replacing the pads at the same time, will this help increase the firmness and stopping power?
Question 3: By getting out the air bubbles is this what increases the firmness and braking power?
Question 4: Are aftermarket pads ok or is it always worth it to use OEM?
