    Better than eels.

    Shimano's TL-BT03-S Disc Brake Bleed Tool includes everything you'll need to perform professional-grade bleed maintenance on your hydraulic braking system. You'll have a syringe, oil funnel, funnel stand, and tube to complete the process; however, do note that this kit is designed specifically for Shimano hydraulic brakes.

    No adapter for funnel

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    From the description: "includes everything you'll need to perform professional-grade bleed maintenance on your hydraulic braking system." Except it doesn't. No mention in the description of needing an additional part (adapter funnel) to make this work with R7020/R8020/R9120 shifters.

    Needs an adaptor for funnel!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This kit will NOT work for the most recent Shimano brake systems (e.g. 8070). The funnel is too small to screw into the top port in the lever. There is an adaptor available (part number ST-R9120) which screws into the lever port, and then the funnel screws into the adaptor. Only with this can you get the last annoying bubbles out of the system. Should have been highlighted in the main description...

    Hey Ray - thanks for the comments. For compatibility of the bleed kit as is - see Bill Sherman's post below. We do normally stock the adapter for the road shifters that are not compatible out of the box. The item # is SHI00MD-WH-FUNADAORI and should be back in stock soon!

    It gets the job done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Since I have a small shop in my garage where I tune up bikes for family and friends I figured I needed this kit. Very simple and easy to use (Thanks to Youtube). Not as complicated as a SRAM bleed kit.

    Price is Nice

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This could be one of those items that Shimano could charge you a lot for and you don't seem like you get your moneys worth but this kit is half as much as I had to spend on the SRAM bleed kit. It would be nice if it came with a little mineral oil though.

      Everything you need except mineral oil

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This kit includes the syringe and cup you need to bleed Shimano brakes. Mineral oil is a separate purchase. You will also need a 7mm wrench. The procedure is pretty straightforward, plenty of videos online.

      First time bleeder

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Finally decided to do the job myself after spending 40$ for both of my shimano slx brakes to be bled. The kit worked flawlessly as I followed some instructional videos online. You just need mineral oil, a 7 mm wrench and you are good to go! The brakes felt great right away and still do after a month of riding.

      Makes an easy job even easier

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Shimano brakes have always been easy to bleed compared to some other brands. This shaves off some time when I'm going through all the bikes in the garage. Not necessarily a requirement, and a little overpriced, but it does its intended purpose well.

      Must have

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you have Shimano Disc brakes and bleed your own brakes this is a must have. It makes bleeding brakes for Shimano quite easy. You will need to get some mineral oil and it doesn't come with an olive and barb that you would need if you were cutting your hose down. Because it is missing those parts it only gets 3 stars instead of 4 or 5.
