Help with filling up hydraulic brake lever without bleed kit
#1
I bought a can of mineral oil from motorex and it came in 250ml aluminium can with big cap, and I need to fill my brake lever with that oil but I don't have syringe or bleed kit. How could I fill it up without syringe or bleed kit and tips? Anything similar to syringe that would work?

Yes, you can try to buy a large syringe at the pharmacy, I think it should work

it depends, like mark Zucker said, you could try to use a large syringe, but the problem is most if not all hydraulic brakes use attachments that thread in. sometimes. You can try to add fluid or get bubbles out this way but I seriously doubt you will be able to actually fully bleed the brakes.

it depends on the brakes you're bleeding, but something like this; [url= https://www.amazon.com/Letgoing-Mountain-Hydraulic-Mineral-Formula/dp/B08L675V5J/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=bike+brake+bleed+kit&qid=1630094625&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyTU02VkNFM1VGUVJJJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNDYwMTI​wMTQxTFlRNTBKTUpVTiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMzM0NDEwMUlHRjNETDFGU1g0UyZ3aWRnZXROYW1​lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=]Bleed kit[/url] should work perfectly well, just make sure to get the one that matches up with your brakes.
