Has anyone used speed bleeders? Do you recommend them? What size would I need for the front and rear?

I don't know what "speed bleeders" are. Over the years of owning and working on many vehicles, I have found the easiest way to bleed brakes is by cracking open the bleeder screw, sticking a vacuum hose from it to a jar of brake fluid, and pumping the pedal (or handle) until clean fluid comes out. Keep the reservoir full.

I did have a one-way valve at one time, but lost it. It prevented air from entering the bleeder hose. But keeping the bleeder hose submerged in brake fluid works too.

On the Burgman, I tried hooking up a vacuum jar, and using my MIghty Mite vac pump, FAIL.

Back to the old way. Simple.

A buddy of mine used them on his Honda Pilot. It has a one-way valve they prevents air from entering. Heard it is very easy to use.

Not sure what size I need or where to get them.

Main mistake people make when bleeding brakes is opening the bleed nipples
to far, if you do air can be drawn down the threads and so bypassing the bleed
tube.
