Front Brake wooahs
Ok, gents I'm back. After a few weeks I'm still annoyed with the front brake. One night on my way home from class my FB went soft, so I speed up my mods process by a few months. I put new pads, brake lines on the ole girl. Bleed the brakes, firm until you start riding then soft. So I took it to the deal to let the bleed the lines. Riding home...soft. Got back on here got some more advice bought my own brake bleeder, re-bleed the lines, firm sitting, ride a bit...soft. After gaining more advice used process of elimination and came to the conclusion that if my front brakes just went soft all of a sudden good chance its the FB master cylinder...purchased a new front master cylinder. Installed new MC, bleed the lines, firm sitting, start riding they get soft. Pump while riding and apply...they are firm. So I come back home and re-bleed the left side...perfect. Now the right side...not so perfect. I can not get a nice stream of fluid to come out. So my conclusion is there has got to be air in that right line.
So...is there any tips or ticks to bleeding braided lines when you now have two lines coming off of one banjo bolt? I'd hate to speed another 90.00 and go back to the dealer. I do wish I had a compressed air brake bleeder like we had at the shop I used to work at some 20 years ago. That thing was great. Fill it with fluid, add air and instantly bleed brakes.
