Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Right tool for the right job. Good bit of kit. Pretty strong considering it's plastic and obviously it fits the avid system perfectly. Feel it's a bit expensive but having this did make the job a lot easier. 24 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally my brakes always ready After be desperate for have bought a good quality brakes but always having to spend a lot of money in mechanic to have them ready i bought this kit (after making a homemade kit that never worked). Now im so happy with this syringes!! Could look like expensive but more expensive is the mechanic once a month. 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 0 fuites ayant peu de connaissance en purge de frein , j'ai pu réussir mes deux premières purges avec succès sans air ni fuites grace a ce kit. je le conseille fortement 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Набор Мега набор для прокачки для круто-мастеров))) Много всяких плюшек в комплекте. Уже протестил. Таким набором и ребенок прокачает. Стоящая вещь. 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Found this to be a good quality peice of kit. Have owned the basic Avid bleed kit before and whilst this one may not work any better or differently the quality of the fittings and syringes is better and i found that it was easier to get the brakes bled well first time. If you do a lot of servicing on your bikes or have more than one bike with avid kit then i would opt for this one. 06 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great kit Got this to rebleed my elixirs after shortening of the hose. Great quality. Comes with a few different avid calliper bleed block and instruction. Easy to use. A must have kit for your avid anchor. 25 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job Easy to use and did the job that it's meant to. It has all the necessary items to enable you to do the work 22 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well thought out You can get a really nice bleed with these, by pulling the plungers out to make a vacuum. My levers are now rock solid, they feel great. Don't know if they are worth the full price though, they are just a pair of nice syringes. Plastic, but a very solid, thick and rigid plastic. 14 May 2014

Answer: 
Afraid not; the bleed ports on the Shimano and Avid systems are a different thread size, so the Avid kit won't connect to the Shimano systems unfortunately.

I'm new to the maintenance of hydraulic disk brakes and it seems to me that the bleed blocks in this kit would serve the same purpose.
PS I understand from Park Tools that their Piston Press PP-1.2 is the one needed for Avid Elixir disc brakes and this does not appear to be stocked by CRC at present. (Nov 2013).

Answers

Answer: 
The brake blocks are for keeping the pistons separated during the bleeding procedure; where as the Piston Press is for separating them if they have been closed completely or have seized.

By using care when removing the wheel and the pads; a piston press should not be needed as the pistons will be in the correct position when the brake blocks are inserted prior to bleeding.

However if a press is required there are some suggestions below.

Answer: 
unless you've compressed the brakes with out the rotor between the pads ,then a piston press shouldnt be required . you are drawing out the fliud and then preasuring the system with new fliud . so the piston dont need to move

Answer: 
no do not rinse with water! , you will never get this compelety out of the tubes . expel all products ( as possible ) when next used you can draw in 20 mil and then expel this fliud as waste product into the same container as you will used for the product thats in the system requireing attention. if youre upgrading youre brakes at this time use the higher grade product to flush the equipment before use.

Answers

Answer: 
Yes, it should be. However, don't use the same syringes for bleeding brakes with DOT fluid and bleeding the reverb seatpost (which needs suspension fluid of some sort) as you will contaminate both systems causing their seals to fail.

Answer: 
hi , ive just looked at a kit for rock shoxs reverb seatpost and they look very similiar .the only problem is you dont have instructions for how to do it ie where the bleed point is ,or the master clyinder (where the fluid is held when the post is fully down ) also what the fliud is . if its oil then it wont need bleeding unless its very old and if your having issues its more likely a seal has gone ,grit has worn it out . youtube may have a clip to show you how or the information may be available via the oem. good look cause it would be a shame to have to by both for the sake of five lines on a piece of paper!
the kit itself is very easy to use and well worth paying extra for the pro kit as its so much easier to use as the conection tubes can swivel unlike the cheaper ones which are fixed and a absolute pain to use . hydraulic fliud absorbs moisture from the atmosphere so brakes will need bleeding every 2 to 3 years. also if your brakes squeal then this can solve that problem.

Answers

Answer: 
No, you would not be able to use this kit with Shimano brakes as the internal diameter of the hose is different on Avid and Shimano bleed kits. You would need a Shimano bleed kit and funnel to bleed Shimano brakes.

Answer: 
in short no! it wont work ,but the kit to bleed your shimano brakes is only 3.99 and the mineral based oil is 4.99 . it seems the shimano uses a funnel to provide a volume of oil and it looks to be only push fit ,where as the avid screws in and deliverys brake fliud under preasure .

Answer: 
No; the threading on the connections is different between brands of brake, so the Avid kit won't work properly with your Magura brakes. You should go for a Magura compatible kit, such as below..
