    I'd say bleed them, might be bubbles in the lines somewhere.
    I'd say it'd be weird, I bled mine for the first time at around 20k, but you never know.

    My dad told me that they're probably a 2 layer gasket. They didn't seem like they're a crush design. To the store I shall go!

    I've got the Evo Engage. Just depends on how much stuff you want to put in there. When I got it, I didn't have a high windscreen, so I didn't want it in the way. If you tour a lot, get a bigger one.
