I have about 2015 Street Glide special with ABS brakes. I purchased chrome front and rear brake lines and I’m looking to install them and I was told that there’s a special procedure to bleed the brakes. I’m looking for a video or something I can do at my home without bringing the bike to the dealer.
We do not currently have a video showing the bleeding of ABS brakes. The service manual specifies that Snap On vacuum brake bleeder # BB200A, or equivalent is required. We prefer using the Phoenix Injector which forces fluid through the brake lines. Be sure to bleed the system, not only at the caliper bleeder valves, but also at each banjo fitting, including at the master cylinder, calipers and at the ABS module. Do not turn on your ignition switch until the system is completely bled and free of air. If you have a soft lever when the m/c is powered up, your ABS light might illuminate and stay on. You will have to have the dealership turn it off with their Digital Technician.
