I got the bug running but the brakes suck. They work but go to the floor. Has anyone used the brake kit that lets you bleed the system with triger pull set up. Is it worth the money.? Razz

Make sure you adjust them first, there are 2 adjusters for each wheel.

No they're not really worth it They might work a few times (I liked mine when I first got it) but I've gone back to having my son pump the brakes while I bleed them. I have heard good things about the type that pressurive the MC but I haven't used one yet.
