lost bleed?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys... Just brought my bike out of the basement. Anyway, while it was down there I swapped every fluid in the thing. had a great bleed on the front brake and a pretty good one on the back. Currently the back is all but worthless and the front I can get to the bar if i pull hard enough.... any idea what happened?

yes. am i going to tell you , eh maby

take the cap of the front and ?snap or light flick it? its hard to describe there are small air bubbles inside the m/cyl they will eventually come out

sometimes it may take 2-3 hundred ticks

same for the rear

make sure it stays full and that crap dont get on your brake pads

ok... still doing it... so i pushed more fluid though it. (trust me, a pain in the butt... its' a trials bike and to get the cap off the rear reservoir the rear fender and most of the exhaust come off) Anyway, the front stayed where it was... not great but working. The back went from GREAT to not nearly enough to hop the front end... heck it's worse then when i started working on it yesterday
