Hi all,

I have changed brake fluid for both brakes today due to the age.

The front lever is far better now and the front brake is very good.

The left bar brake is far better now as well, but with constant bleeding the lever does come a lot further back than before but does not touch the bar.

Any thought at all would be great as the brakes were fine, but i am a little un sure on the left one.

Pads are all fine.

A belated welcome to you!

I just did front and rear brakes this weekend. What I found on the front was a leaky bleed valve (for the middle piston). I could not get the bleeder vacuum pump to hold. After about 20 minutes I discovered the leak. I removed the bleed valve and used some teflon tape to seal it and was able to get the vacuum to hold. Not sure this helps. My lever comes back pretty far now and the brakes work very well. Note: bleeding the front brake is a two step process. Bleed the front (linked piston) then go back and bleed the rear again. It should be fine after that. Are you using a vacuum bleeder pump or pumping the handle and gravity?

Hi and thankyou for your reply.

I am using good old traditional piece of pipe method, no bleed kit tool of any kind.

this tool came highly recommended,and works great!
pretty close to speed bleeders, only you just slip it on the existing nipple, open it,and squeeze the lever and pump the fluid through...
