front brake problem?
hey guys, 2003 RC.
when i got the bike it had a very very soft brake lever. figured it just needed to be bled better.. got it home used the vacuum hand pump, and did a complete fluid change in the front brakes. when i was done the lever was fine. took it for a spin, and all was well. no spongey here.
well over the next 2-3 days the lever started to get all spongey. and eventually it was almost back to where it was when i got it.
re bled everything, and topped off the fluid.
this time i noticed on the hand pump that when doing the Right side caliper (brake lever side), the fluid was bouncy and seemed to be drawing in a small amount of air from somewhere.
i finished bleeding it again. and then went back and started looking for leaks, tears, or anything to replace.. nothing. the bike is not loosing fluid. its just getting air in the system some how.
im suspecting the right side caliper? as the left side didnt have this issue..
and because the bike uses a 1 into 2 line setup, wouldnt a small tear in the line or leak above the caliper cause air in BOTH?
caliper rebuild kits?
replace the caliper?
need answers asap
