Thanks for that Margon. Gotta be honest I don't see the point in buying a bleed kit for ~ £20, when all that's required is a short niece of flexible hose. It's probably possible without the venting hose, but will be messy and more difficult to see when air stops coming out (should be able to tell in the feel of the lever though). My hose isn't braided, so I think I could cut it with a sharp stanley knife. Just need to get some dot 5.1 brake fluid and some new pads.
