I saw some videos in Youtube showing how to used this kit because I was intimidated. It was easier than I thought, but having the right equipment was 99% of the battle. If you want to bleed or flash your hydrolic brakes, all you need is this kit, and a bottle of DOT brake fluid. You don't even have to be a mechanic. My brakes were not responding to my hard squeezes of the levers, after I bleeded them using this kit, the feel is SOLID and the stopping power is SOLID as well.
