St. George, UT: February 23, 2016 – This month’s consumer experience story is given to us from Steve Butler out of Kokomo, Indiana. Little background on Steve, he is a Technical Manager at Delphi Automotive LLP, a leading technology company for automotive and commercial vehicles. He said he is not only an enthusiast of technology and cars, but of motorcycles, boats, and just about anything else with an engine.

Steve said he has multiple cars in his garage alongside with his motorcycles and a nice boat to take out the family on the weekends. He noted the only problem with having multiple toys is that there is inevitably going to be at least one problem amongst the collection.

His motorcycles have always seemed to be a difficult problem to solve. “For anybody who has had to perform a brake flush on your motorcycle, you know it can be quite taxing. Calipers have to be hung over the bike itself, and it can create a mess that may only solve half of the problem. Also, with this old method, you run the risk of ruining the motorcycles cosmetic appearance with any spill of brake fluid,” said Steve.

Steve continued to say, “I was experiencing these motorcycle problems, along with a very stubborn Chevy Trail Blazer that refused to properly flush out the retired fluid.” After running three quarts of brake fluid through the Chevy system and not getting proper results, Steve turned to what he called his best resource, the Internet.

Simply typing, “brake bleeding,” into his search engine brought him to, the home page for Phoenix Systems. Steve said after searching through many possible solutions, the V12 Reverse Brake & Clutch Bleeder seemed to stand out.

The V12 Reverse Brake & Clutch Bleeder is built for the do it yourself mechanic who wishes to perform any brake job by themselves. This brake and clutch bleeder not only relieves the stress of finding another person to help you perform one task, but also saves you from wasting time and unnecessary brake fluid.

Steve said after reading the functions of the product and watching a couple, “how to videos,” he decided he had the confidence that this tool could solve his problems.

Steve expressed his reassurance for the product by saying, “I was able to bleed my car very quickly and with very little brake fluid. Not only did it work really well for my Chevy, but I also decided I might as well use it for my motorcycles. That way I don’t have to go through the old tricks of taking the calipers off and using a step ladder to hold them in the air.”

“I’ve been bleeding brakes on my cars for over 30 years, and this gave me a refreshing change. I’ve never been anything but frustrated with this procedure. Phoenix Systems did a really good job at relieving my stress,” Steve said.

Phoenix Systems brake bleeders provide anybody, from the inexperienced mechanic to the seasoned shop owner, the ability to simply perform an efficient brake job. These tools pair with their innovative brake fluid test strips to know when a brake job is necessary on any vehicle.
