    Bleeding Hayes disk brakes

    Is there a tool to help bleed the brakes? I tried it and failed miserably, the Hayes manual doesn't mention a tool, it just out of the blue says something about hooking up a hose to the bleeder valve so I am assuming some sort of hand pump? If there is a too, what is it called and where can I find it to order on-line?
    thanks

    Yes, Hayes makes a bleed kit. It should be about $25 anywhere.
    It has a small plastic fitting to fit in your brake lever, a plastic bottle, a piece of hose and some DOT 4 fluid.
