    Hi, Not advisable! Air does not compress like brake fluid so the result would be a spongy feeling to the brakes. The bigger hazard is that a hard brake may lock one wheel and not the other. ABS excluded. When trying to stop a 2000lb + machine do you want to take a chance? Fixing your brakes right is a safety priority, do it right.

It's best you do all wheels at the same time. start from the farthest wheel from the master cyclinder. after you have bled each wheel cylinder/caliper ... fill the master cylinder again to ensure enough fluid is in it. if you do just the front you are likely to **** air back into the front from the rear brakes (if any air is present).

Front brakes


Try bleeding the master cylinder first. Pump the brakes up,and hold lever in while loosening banjo bolt at the master cylinder. Loosen it slowly untill the fluid "rushes " out.The lever will go down,and just holdit in while tightening the banjo bolt. Be sure to use a towel or something over the tank/fairings,so it doesnt mess up the paint. Repeat this about 2 times,THEN bleed the caliper farthest from the master cylinder,then the other. This should fix your problem. If it still doesnt hold pressure,then most likely you have a leak in the master cylinder,or one or both of the calipers. Good Luck!

Cant get any damm presure back in the rear brake even after bleeding sposter


If you can't get any pressure on the rear brake, you have one of several possible problems. Either you have a brake fluid leak somewhere, your rear brake master cylinder is bad, or your bleeding procedure is not correct. Let's take the simple one first, your bleeding procedure. This is easy to get confused on but it must be done in an exact sequence. To bleed the brakes, first depress the brake lever and hold it down. Then, open the brake bleeder valve and allow the air and fluid to bleed out. Then, close the bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and give the master cylinder time to refill though the small hole in the master cylinder reservoir. Repeat the procedure until you get a good firm pedal Do not allow the reservoir to run dry during this process. If you have a fluid leak, you should be able to see that. If the master cylinder is bad, it could be allowing the fluid to bypass the pressure cup inside of it. If this is the case, the master cylinder should be rebuilt. If this was done and it is not building pressure, the rubber pressure cup could have been installed backwards. It goes in with the cupped side facing the back of the master cylinder or the end where the brake line connects to the master cylinder.

Good Luck

On really warm days the front brakes on my 1976 Kawasaki 900 LTD begin to tighten and the brakes apply. It gets to tight that I have to pull over and bleed the pressure off. I have rebuilt the master...


make sure the piston in the master is going all the way back past the bleed orifice, if it ddoesn't go all the way back the system willl build pressure through heat

How to get front brake pressure after changing master cylinder, bleeding didnt help or maybe im not doing it right


vacuum bleeding is best for these brakes. To do it without a vacuum pump you must pull the handle very slowly and pause about three seconds between handle pulls to allow fluid to refill the piston chamber.

I filled my clutch resevoir and can't bleed. It


sounds like the master cylinder is not properly bleed. make sure there is no air in system, thats the most common reason that it does not build up pressure, did the cylinder run dry?, if so, more then likely you have air in system, if not, you may need a new slave cylinder.

Bleed front brakes on 93 Honda shadow VT1000, 1 piston was sticking, pulled caliber apart, cleaned pistons, replaced seals, reassembled. now it won't build pressure, got fluid coming out of bleeder valve,...


you"ll have to get a new piston and start over im afraid...you dont want to mess around with Front brakes.. then add all new dot4...you should only need to pump them four to five times then go ride real slow...once confidence is biult up and you trust the breaks hit about 40mph and genty apply brakes to suff them in the do it again and again for the first day..second day start getting on them a lot harder and then they should be seated perfectly...no glaze!

Cannot get clutch to bleed out


hold in the lever while you open the bleed nipple let out the air & fluid & close nipple quickly b4 releasing the lever!!!
now let the lever come back & do it all again keep repeating the process until you have only fluid coming out of the nipple!
& dont let the fluid get tooo low in the reservoir!!!!!!
it helps if you put a clear peice of tubing over the nipple & the other end in a glass jar with fluid in it so that air cant get back up the tubing!!!!
you can buy a kit at most auto stores! [ single bleeding kit]
when no air in system close nipple pump lever ti build up pressure
the open nipple & close it again quickly!
let thhe lever back & let it rest so the rber inside can regain its seling capacity!
you may need a few tries ta this part! [pressure bleeding]
then it should be fine! if not try pressure bleeding from the start!
but dont agitate the fluid as it creates mor air bubbles!
ok good luck
cheers rob

Just a thought.....air will rise. If you put plenty of fluid in the clutch res... lock it down......and you put the bleeder valve higher than the reservoir....(tilt the wheel you are bleeding in the air) won't the air go to the top...........?????...just a back words way of thinking of it..........hmmm mtg
