    • Rotating the speed adjuster to the slowest setting is critical for a successful bleed. Failure to do so may result in insufficient fluid volume inside the hydraulic remote system.

    • Draw 20 ml of Reverb hydraulic fluid into the syringe. Hold the syringe upright, cover the tip with a shop towel, and gently depress the plunger to purge any air bubbles from the syringe.

    • Depress the remote syringe plunger while pulling the seatpost syringe plunger out.

    • Do not empty the syringe. Leave at least 5 ml of fluid in each syringe during the procedure to avoid air entering the system.

    • Depress the seatpost syringe plunger while pulling the remote syringe plunger out. Repeat these steps until bubbles are no longer pulled from the remote and seatpost.

Repeat this process until bubbles are no longer pulled from the remote into the syringe. Then remove the syringe. Install the bleed screw and tighten it.
