I topped off the reservoir manually with RBF600 before/ after every corner. I have a ball valve right before the motive in case that wasn’t obvious.
So you're just using the Motive reservoir adapter attached to an air hose to pressurize the system? You empty and refill the reservoir first, then put the pressure cap on and pressurize, then you go to the first corner, open the bleeders and allow the fluid to flush through, then depressurize the reservoir, top it up and do the next corner - right?

Would you mind doing a short video for those of us who have abstract visualization issues? lol... seriously though.

luckily I went into mass production on the brake bleeding front this week.

One other tip I came up with a while back: On the tubing that you attach to the brake bleeder valves at each corner, zip tie part of a coat hanger to the tubing at several points. That will give you the ability to bend the tubing to whatever angle you need when you feed it to your used brake fluid container, and it cuts down significantly on the likelihood of brake fluid flying everywhere if the end slips off your bleeder valve.

i had been using the motive bleeder for years and i recently switched to this one last year. This unit is 10x better than motive bleeder.

You can also bleed the system up to 50PSI.

I looked long and hard at pressure bleeders last year. I liked the one you have but I was concerned that it was designed for large quantities of fluid, and the most I use in a whole season is about two litres, and even then it's not all at once. How is it with small quantities?

Looks like it could drip out some ‘shine between fluid changes..

+1 on the make and model request.

I'm not saying there is a reason to do this, but the 2018 factory service manual specifies pressurizing the system with 30 to 50 psi... apparently they want the fluid to move so fast that it scrubs the brake lines clean... lol.

No problem - you could do it at a lower pressure if you just blend in a little toothpaste before you flush it through.
