Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi i have a honda XR250 03-04 *** import and my brakes are spongy? I have changed the disks and pads and i have bleed the brakes but are still spongey like not sharp poor breaking thanks
The new pads may require a few kilometers of riding before they bed into the new disks.
Failing this, try reverse bleeding of your brakes. Use a large syringe and tube. Fill the syringe with brake fluid, being careful to remove all air from the syringe and tube. Connect to bleed nipple, and with the brake lever fluid reservoir cap removed, compress the brake fluid back up to the reservoir. Your syringe will need to be large enough to contain more fluid than caliper and line combined for this procedure.

Did you adjust the rear shoes out? If the rear drum brakes are out of adjustment they will give you a lot of pedal travel. If the pads are worn have no fear of that U-CLIP brake spring, just change one shoe at a time. Take the spring off one side, change the shoe, put the spring back on the post and do the same to the other shoe, no problem.

SOURCE: Spongy brakes
So long as the brake booster is working, test it by turning on the engine, press the brake pedal all the way down, then shut off engine keeping your foot on the brake pedal, if the pedal comes up slightly pushing against your foot then the booster IS working.
Did you BLEED the brakes??????
