    Replacing / Bleeding the Brake Fluid using DealerTool

    For anyone contemplating this task, I found a guide with quite a detailed description
    for carrying out the procedure using the after market DealerTool device - which cycles the
    ABS Valves allowing all of the Fluid in the ABS system to be completely bled through.

    DISCLAIMER : I have not needed to perform this task myself yet,
    and cannot verify the accuracy of the content, it's source or author.

    Edited to add :
    The attached document describes the process for Sprint and Tiger models, the Trophy system is similar.

    I have done it several times which is very comfortable because you do not have to press either the brake pedal or the front brake lever.

    Hmmm ...

    To clarify, the Brake Lines would be bled first in the normal manner
    ( as described in the Service Manual ), then the ABS valves would be operated
    using the DealerTool, operating the Brake levers as described,
    and the ABS System bled, then the brake lines are bled again
    to ensure all old fluid is removed from the system.

    How often should the brake fluid be replaced?

    They advise to the years, but if through the window of the tanks of brake and clutch, it is observed that the liquid is losing its color. It will be time to replace the brake fluid.

    Yes, of course, once you get the job done with the front brake lever and brake pedal, the software does the job. That is what I meant.

    ABS Diagnostics

    Bleed System
    This function is used to bleed the ABS system. Pressing the Start button will allow the diagnostic tool to
    send a command to operate the solenoid valves in the ABS hydraulic modulator. This allows any trapped air
    in the hydraulic modulator to be bled from the system via the front and rear brakes.

    Note:

    If any diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) are present, the diagnostic tool will prompt you to read and
    erase the DTCs before continuing with the bleed procedure.
    The faults which caused the DTCs to be stored must be rectified and cleared before continuing with the
    bleed system command.
    The bleed procedure will not complete successfully if DTCs are present.

    1. Refer to the relevant service manual for your motorcycle.

    2. Press the Start button and bleed the front and/or rear brakes as directed by the instructions in the
    service manual.

    3. The bleed sequence will run for a period of between 90 and 140 seconds depending on the model. Press
    the Stop button to end the bleed sequence at any time. Once the bleed sequence has completed the
    diagnostic tool will display a message ABS system bleed complete.

    4. Allow the ABS hydraulic modulator to cool for 5 minutes before repeating the bleed procedure.

    5. Repeat the bleed sequence as necessary.
