I have a 2004 650 with an FMFQ, re-jetted, bark busters, mini tach and HEL braided lines. I like the bike but want to get two things straightened out.
1) I have bled and bled and I cannot get a firm front brake lever (I know it's not me as my GSXR race bike is always kept solid) so I'm wondering if the front master cyl is just "like that" and I should change it? Maybe I'm asking for too much but I want a firm brake as I am used to one finger braking (maybe 2 on the track) and this thing is better than stock with the lines but still not where I like it. Any advice like opening a port or adding another type of master???
2) Front preload, I need it and bad. I don't use the bike too much so I don't want to invest in springs just yet. I've seem threads on oil type and level as well as PVC preload spacers. What size are the spacers, and are they simply a matter of popping the caps and placing in the legs or do they go in the bottom end? Any help would be appreciated.
