No rear brake after storage?

Recommended Posts

Sadly my DRZ probably only saw 150 miles last year, and then sat in the garage on the stand over the winter (as well as anytime it wasn't ridden last year). Started going through the bikes in the garage and changing the oil for the season and noticed the DRZ didn't have any rear brakes. No leaks, clear fluid (correct level), etc. Bled the brakes and now have a good solid pedal again, no problems at all (For the moment of course).  Anyone else have rear brake problems after storage, or should I look at something else?

never lost a brake like that, but the fluid turns into the consistency of aunt jemima syrup after about 12 years haha .. found that out when i couldnt see in the window anymore ... if you bled some fresh fluid in it and it works though i wouldnt worry about it ..
