A dirt bike’s brake bleed screw rubber caps have a habit of being torn off or damaged. This allows water (then rust) and crud to get inside the bleed screw, thus making it impossible to bleed your brakes without first removing them to clean the stuff out. My solution is to remove the brake bleed screws, throw away the rubber thingy, tap the end of the bleed screw with a No. 6-32 tap and then install a screw about 3/8 inch long, and the problem is solved forever. It isn’t fancy or super trick, but it is very effective.
