    En route Nigeria to Ivory Coast. Currently at cape coast in Ghana. So decided to change my brake pads for the final stretch (500km) of the trip. Did a successful change out but the brakes wont build pressure. Finished a full can of the brake fluid trying to bleed off the brakes and still no luck. Need ideas to resolve the challenge. Thanks

    Just a thought, I have had one instance where a pad was caught on the spring inside the caliper, so it fitted but was slightly angled. Fluid would push it into the disc, but the spring would push it back out, so the lever always felt spongy.

    Thanks all for the help, finally got it to work most likely issue came from how the brake pads where put in, really can't tell. But had a new brake cylinder assembly before it got to work.
