Has anyone tried to reverse bleed the brake system on a Victory with ABS? I have used this method on previous bikes (no ABS) with no problem at all. I tried on the XCT last night with zero success. Wiggled the handle, played with the bleeder valve, and even applied a little pressure to the fresh fluid side but could not get the fluid to go towards the reservoir. :confused:

I don't know what the ABS would have to do with bleeding, but I just bleed my new hydraulic clutch. Tried for a while to force bleed it, but instead decided to take a rest and low and behold, the next day all the air bubbles rose to the reservoir.

I have done a lot or reverse bleeding. As I remember you have to have the brake lever pushed back a tad to allow the fluid to get in.
What are you using to push the fluid?
I used to use a old fashion oil squirt can. New of coarse.
I doughy very much there is any kinda off one way valve in the line.
I wounder if the fluid is being stopped at the ABS module
