I am lost, broke front right break line, fixed it, need to bleed have no breaks at all, tried to bleed like u would a car, nothing, still have no breaks front or rear please i need all the help i can get
ok maybe I can help but prior to starting be sure your pads are in good shape and the rear pad is adjusted right,Start by filling your reservoir and replace the rubber diaphram but not the cover or just set the cover with the diaphram on but do not tighten it,put a boxed end wrench on your caliper's bleeder screw and attach some snug fitting clear tubing over the bleeder and submerge the tubing into a container of clean brake fluid,I use a clear plastic soda bottle.Pump your brake lever slowly until pressure builds,"like a car" while holding the lever open the bleeder and as you do watch for air bubbles in your bottle,close the bleeder,release the lever and continue pumping and bleeding till you have no more air bubbles in your container but keep maintaining your fluid level in your reservoir.After one side is done go to the other and do the same.When finished,top off your brake fluid and tighten.That's the way I do it and it's always worked for me
it does take alot to bleed brakes on these for sure. just make sure you dont run the resevoir day when your bleeding them as it doesnt hold much fluid. also it does take a long time, but you can almost gravity feed bleed it by leaving the bleeder screw open and it will sometimes slowly push the air out. imo
They shore aint like bleeding brakes on a automobile,sometimes.if You think You have the air out of the system then let it set for several hours then come back and give it a try then if You still do`nt have brakes give it the old "I am frustrated as h@@ bunch of forcefull pumps" and not always,but sometimes, with an expression of surprize the brakes start working.
