Re: Bleeding Brakes

Keep bleeding & bleeding...If the pistons were pushed back they can sometimes take a while to push out...

Also It's worth bleeding the M/C...LOADS of rags ! Then crack the banjo at the M/C...fluid will come out hence the rags but air can get trapped at that point...

Re: Reculator/Rectifier
