    I have these two things that I assume are bleader valves attached to my master cylinder. My question is how do these work, are they just for bleading the master cylinder?

    those are a type of acculator IIRC

    they were in the magasines claiming to act as a cheap add on ABS

    cannot recall the name so I couldnt get a link for you /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Thats what I was thinking too. Some kind of acumulator, probably some kind of presurized diaphram in there or something.

    I would think you would just bleed the system normaly, they shouldn't have an impact on the bleeding procedure at all, because they should remain open (I wouldn't think they close the line off, like the Electroinc Anti-Lock brake systems do, of which only close the line in a hard ABS activation stop any-ways)

    I saw something like that in a Summit or Jegs magazine. It's an aftermarket ABS.
