Does anyone know what a “Bleed test with BMW diagnostics” is?
Wonder if it is the same as bleeding the brakes!
Thanks very much,
The bleed test is used on bikes with Integral ABS (the original version, R1150RS through K1200LT). It measures the compressibility of the fluid in the wheel and control circuits, and if it’s too compressible it assumes that there is air in the system. The computer spits out numbers representing the compressibility, assigns a pass/fail to them, and then gives the numbers to the tech anyway so he can see if it’s a really good result or just a marginal one.
It only applies to that system; not ABS1, ABS2 or Integral ABS 2.
