I have a proper Magura kit for bleeding Julies. A couple of syringes, some tube, a wee bottle of blood and the small fitting that screws into Julie caliper.
Do these brakes need that same wee screw-in fitting?

Just re-read this post and the content seems a bit iffy, so I'll just say now that I no longer do drugs and have never screwed anyone called Julie, that I know of.

Reasonably priced Magura bits from Tarty Bikes:

I have a basic bleed kit for Shimano brakes, and hope to adapt it for Maguras using the barbed fitting and some Royal Blood, which I have purchased.

Eck you can just disconnect and refit, I've done the maggies and even cutting the hose doesn't need a bleed. IIRC you screw in the adjuster on the lever, anyhoo its a piece of piss, I had a kit but gave it away when I sold them :roll:

The last time I bled mine was about 1995, but I don't remember it being difficult at all.

If you need instructions, I've probably still got the originals in the box they came in!
