If it has been sitting on the sidestand, the cylinders on the low side occasionally become fouled - which will clear up pretty fast or after changing the plugs. There is probably gunk in the rear caliper from sitting & dealer may want to check the fronts as well. Dealers are really expensive & I would guess that they would want $250 or so just to fix the rear brake issue. When i needed all my calipers cleaned, my dealer wanted almost $1000., so I did them myselves for about $50. Rick

26" Hyper Havoc Full Suspension Men's Mountain Bike is it good ride for around town as well as country terrain


Looks like a nice bike to ride everywhere and as an urban commuter I would love to ride it in traffic instead of using a road bike or commuter type. If you need more speed in town or want to compete, a road bike might be better. A mountain bike will probably last longer than a road bike under all driving conditions.

No fluid coming out of the rear master cylinder on my 2006 harley sportser


A master cylinder bore has two small holes in it. One is the supply hole the other is the bypass port. Typically master cylinder issues are created after long periods of sitting when one or both of these holes are plugged. Be sure you can visually verify with a brake cleaner spray that they are both open and clear when you dissassemble the cylinder. Also be sure to use the correct type of brake fluid and do not mix DOT 3/4 with DOT5. Begin your bleeding process at the m/cyl banjo bolt and work your way back bleeding at all the banjo bolts and the bleeder screw last. Good Luck

Did you bleed the air out of the rear master cylinder and brake line? Be sure the master cylinder has brake fluid and don't let it get too low while bleeding the brake. Bleed the master cylinder first, then the wheel caliper. tombones49_196.gif

I want to up grade my xr 200 1999 front forks , better forks and disc brake what bike will do this to my xr im thinking of change over,


Think of any of the motocross bikes.You will fit the cr front ends but it is also best to change the brake master cyl. at the same time.Check the weight of the exchange bike to get it pretty close to yours.Spring sizes and weights will then give you an upgrade ride and you dont have to play around with them too much.Look in the 250 2 stroke range first.Plenty of them around and the weight is similar.Hope this helps you

Brake Pedal goes to the floor in my 1990 Chevy C1500 Scottsdale


do you have a self bleeder kit? first off, you have to bleed the master cyl back into its self and the combination valve before you go to the wheels. when you do that, I think you will find that you have air in the lines. disconnect both brake lines from the master cyl and put the bleeder kit fittings on the master cyl, then put the rubber tubing with the kit on the fittings and submerge it in the brake reservoir. make sure its full. then pump the pedal until you get a hard pedal. if that is the case, reconnect the lines to the master, then have an assistant pump up the brake pedal with the engine off, and bleed the combination valve which should be connected to the master by steel tubing. pump it up, then hold it down, and crack the fittings loose, one at a time until the pedal goes about half way down, but do not release the brake pedal until the line is tight again, otherwise you will **** air in the lines. after you do all that, go to the farthest caliper or wheel cylynder from the master and bleed that with the same technique,and dont release the pedal until you close the bleeder screw. unless you have a major prob, this will work.

Abs light flashing alternatively when putting ignition on


There is a simple way to fix it as I've discovered. Start your bike, if lights are flashing ride for a mile or two applying the rear brake a few times. Stop the bike and place on centre stand. switch off motor then restart. Your flashing lights should have gone. Why the flashing happens is if you ride and use your rear brake rarely and then your bike sits for a day or two without use your rear brake assembly fully retracts, ie pads away from disc and ABS gizzmos inactive. The ABS sensor unit then reports extended non use pattern to the onboard 'brain' which activates the warning mode of flashing lights. This has worked for me several times over the last 5 years when its occured. Full ABS operations return. Tried it on a mates bike and it fixed same problem on his.

Brakes


What was done to the car as far as brakes recently? Is the master cylinder leaking? If not, u have air in the lines. Bleed wheel greatest distance from master cyl., working your way to the closest wheel last. Keep checking the master cyl. level, cause if it gets too low, u will have to start over again. When do u hear the noise from the back? When u apply the brakes? Have u pulled the rear drums to look and see what's going on? Let me know the answers to the above, and bleed the brakes in the order described. Let me know what s going on,.
