bleeding problem?

hi all
any info on bleeding the brakes on my r33 gtr.
ive just changed the fluid and they are a wee bit spongey all the air seems to be out of the system. ive heard about bleeding the abs pump but there doesnt seem to be a bleed nipple on my pump.
anybody any thoughts?
cheers john

I was told there should be no need to bleed the abs pump......

When I do mine I do them one bleed nipple at a time ie two goes on each caliper - it takes longer but for some reason gives me better pedal feel afterwards compared to duel-bleeding.

thanks ken, ive bled each caliper a few times now and they are still a bit spongey, saying that if you half press the pedal and press it again its solid and doesnt go soft.
cheers anyway

Some people (including me) have also fitted a brake-stopper which prevents the master cylinder from moving when the pedal is depressed firmly. It doesn't increase braking power but gives a more confident and immediate feel to the brakes. There are several available so you may need to shop around. Easy to fit too.

Cheers,

Ken

I'm quiet sure the R33 abs block does have bleed nipples. There should be two I know on the R32 they have them.

Start from the caliper further away from the master cylinder so LR, RR, LF and RF. Then do the abs. I would avoid dot 5 or 5.1 gives soft pedal feel compared to dot 4 or 4.1

Replaced brake fluid on my R33 Gtr today, couldn't find any bleed nipple on the abs block.

Just followed the same sequence listed above with no real issue.

3 of my bleed nipples were blocked from sitting about so long; removed them and a quick drill through seen them right again
