Hello guys, Y'all are always a big help to me with my problems and this is a really noob question, but here goes. I took apart the brake system to paint the bike, I then put it back on, but isnt bleeding. It doesnt even seem like fluid is entering the master. I took apart the master and the seels dont look too bad and there is no scoring. What should I do? I dont want to buy a vaccum kit or anything. I purchased a steel brake line but I am waiting to put it on. Could it be the line? I also purchased a rebuild kit, but itll be a while till it gets hear. Anything I should try, or any reasons y'all can think pf for why fluis isnt even entering the master cylinder? Thanks again, feel free to roast me for this question.
(At this point my front brake is strong, could do endos) So my front tire pops, I take the wheel off. Take it to a shop, they fix it, I bring it back, put it on the bike, disc slides in without issues, but now my front brake is so weak, and it comes to the handle bar quite easily. So I try to bleed them out, but can’t get them any better than what they were already at when I put the wheel back on. But they were perfect before? So why? It can’t be my pads, this is pissing me off. 06 rmz450
Hey TT! So I have been having problems with the rear brake on my 2006 S; it will work immediately after bleeding the system but loses stopping power after a few pumps of the brake pedal. Just today I rebuilt the rear master cylinder (replaced all seals and cleaned the all parts with brake cleaner), but the problem persisted even after that, the brake worked for the first few applications and then lost almost all of its power. It seems that air is getting into the system somewhere and I can say without a reasonable doubt that it isn't the master cylinder since I've just rebuilt it. What is the next most likely place air is getting in? The lines are quite dirty and I'd guess they've never been replaced since the bike was made (06) Should I start there? It's a good excuse to with to steel braided lines haha! The reservoir is also looks a bit corroded and warped at the top where the reservoir cap goes on, so it's possible there isn't a good seal there.
