"I received my order of Speed Bleeder brand checkvalves  for my Honda ST1100 last week.  Installation was simple, after getting the plastic bodywork off.  What really pleased me was the ease of performing the fluid changes with the new Speed Bleeders in place.  The ST1100 has four bleed valves, three for the brake calipers and one for the clutch.  It took no more than a couple of minutes to completely change the fluids."

"This is a great product, I'll recommend it to my friends with no reservations."

The old manual way
Bleeding brakes used to be a difficult thing to do in the past. It generally required two people to bleed brakes. You had to have one person pump the brake pedal while you had the mechanic open and close the bleeder screw. You had to coordinate the openings and closings with the pumper. If you didn't coordinate the timing correctly you could end up with more air in the system than when you started.

Alternative ways
Bleeding brakes can be done a number of ways:

  • You can use a pressure bleeder that attaches to your master cylinder and pressurizes the system. You open each bleeder screw individually to bleed your brakes. It costs about $300.00. It works very well, but who wants to invest $300.00 to bleed one or two vehicles.

  • A vacuum bleeder is another way to bleed brakes. It attaches to your bleeder screw and sucks the fluid from the master cylinder, thus bleeding your brakes. If not used correctly, it  can let air into your brake system. It costs from $30.00-$100.00.

The new and improved way
Introducing  SPEED BLEEDER® brand checkvalve,  the patented bleeder screw with the built-in check valve. It is truly a one-person bleeder screw.   Once installed, it becomes a permanent part of the brake system.  When it is time to bleed your brakes, you loosen the Speed Bleeder brand checkvalve 1/4  turn and pump your brake pedal.  When the pedal is depressed the pressure generated opens the check valve letting air and brake fluid out of the end of the Speed Bleeder brand checkvalve.  When you release the pedal and it returns to the up position, the check valve closes and prevents any air from reentering the system through the Speed Bleeder.  When bubble free fluid is evident you close the Speed Bleeder brand checkvalve.  In the closed position it works just like your stock bleeder screw and prevents any brake fluid from leaking out.   It generally takes about 5 pumps to purge each caliper or wheel cylinder.  That is all there is to bleeding your brakes.  If at a later date you need to bleed your brakes, the patented thread sealing system makes it easy to open the bleeder screw to perform the bleeding operation. It is made of quality materials and it is economical.

Features of SPEED BLEEDER® brand checkvalve

  • Stainless steel spring

  • Stainless steel ball

  • Brass retainer

  • The threads are roll formed.  This process results in a stronger and smoother thread than one that is cut.

  • The chamber for the ball and spring is precision reamed and the seat for the stainless steel ball is machined to exacting tolerances.

  • Zinc chromate plating  withstands a 30 hour salt spray.  Other plating with higher salt spray results is also available.

  • Patented thread sealing system seals the threads when the bleeding operation is performed, preventing air from being sucked back into the system.

  • The pre-applied thread sealant also displaces air and moisture during thread engagement preventing rust...which usually results in rounded off corners on the hex or busted off bleeder screws making it necessary to replace the caliper or brake cylinder. The application of thread sealant thus makes it easy to loosen or remove the bleeder screw at any time.
