    well i have managed to get a good deal on calipers vented disks and pads to pick up tomorrow. Have been reading about bleeding once changed over. Do i have to bleed the clutch aswell as brakes as read from 2 different sides? Also will the master cylinder and other parts be ok upgrading to vented discs?
    Thanks dan

    Hi Dan,

    when I put in braided hoses I did not bleed the clutch so I don't think you will have to either...the master cyclinder should cope but you'll only know this once the conversion is done.....
