I think he means trying to bleed it on the road.

it does not help if air is in the system.
but, if it does not help it will not harm ;-) .
It's not a permanent fix, but if you're on the road and want firm brakes for a day or 2 - it works fine. It sure works better than double pumping mushy brakes. I've done it with very good success.


I've been told if you bleed at the calipers after a night of ziptie, you can clear the fluid pretty well, and pretty quickly.
