    Hi all, Just rebuilt front forks work great unfortunately for me rear brake inop, when i was tearing the front end off i accidentally loosened a brake hose at the junction block on the right fork leg and brake fluid leaked.
    I can understand spongy from air introduction but nothing? tried bleeding at that point of the leak no pressure there any suggestions? Thanks :Israel:

    looks like in the factory manual there is a substantial bleeding procedure shes got 25k and there is a little color in the fluid so i do believe that ill preform said procedure and see what happens,Ill bleed the clutch also.

    I think that the cost of Speed Bleeders is well worth the investment, espcially if you plan to keep the bike for the forseeable future.
