Bleeding Rear brakes on KTM 250SXF

I just dont know how, never done it. Any ideas on how to bleed my rear brake line. I have just got a new rear brake cable and put it on and now needs to be bled or does it? Doesnt seem to have rear brakes yet though.

    you mean a new brake hose not cable. firstly fill the reservoir and pump up the brake pedal 3 - 4 times. while holding it down, loosen the bleed fitting on the caliper. you could get a clear plastic hose to fit and put end in an old jam jar. (so fluid dont go over the floor.. nip up the fitting then release the brake, pump it up again and repeat until there is no bubbles coming out with the fluid, whilst doing this do not let reservoir run out

Get someone to pump the brake pedal a few times, and someone else to undo the bleed screw, it will be a small grease nipple looking thing on the rear caliper. Undo the screw then re-tighten it, holding the pedal down the whole time. Repeat until fluid comes out of the screw, then do it a couple more times to be safe. Be sure to wipe the fluid off your bike as it strips paint. Also make sure the reservoir has plenty of fluid in it before you start.

Brake pedal pressure low after replacing and bleeding rear brakes


i dont know what this car is but it sounds like you need to adjust the rear brakes and also there may be air still in the sytem, there are many cars that cross brake systems so if you are working on the left rear wheel you would also need to bleed the right front wheel, heres what i would do make sure to fill the brake fluid and always keep an eye on the level as you are bleeding the brakes, start at the right rear wheel and bleed it a few times then move to the left rear wheel, bleed that then go to the right front and bleed that one and last is the left front and that should solve ant air in the system problem, also make sure there are no leaks in any of the brake lines. good day.

Did you bleed rear brakes also? Should do all 4 whenever bleeding brakes starting w/ right rear, left rear, right front then left front. Sounds like air in lines.

mcdevito75 here, You have a dual chamber master cylinder sounds like 1 of those cahmbers the rear one is faulty, the master cylinder is most likeky the main prblem, specially if this was happening slowly. Try to re-bleed in this sequense left front, right front, left rear, right rear make sure the stream of fluid is solid, no spurting at the bleeder, and keep the master cylinder full when bleeding, if you let the master cylinder go to low while bleeding your only sucking in more air.

Driver side brake not bleeding properly after bleeding left side and changing rotors, calipers, and pads?


first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run dry.next prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the modulator.place the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is submerged.open the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.

Bleeding brakes


anyone have any ideas as to which is the best way to do it seeing as though it now has a new brake line on the front. Any suggestions or taking the **** much appreciated.pump and shut is the way i do it takes about 15 minutes for front and rear with fresh fluid. ie Pump the brake three times then open the bleed nipple wait until the lever softens up to the grip tighten without letting go of the lever and pump again and so on etc... As for the vacuum i use a large vets syringe and some pipe ( robbed from the wifes lamb reviving kit ) Please note : No lambs died during the making of my Bleeding kit.,,,

No brakes


Hi Robert!

When bleeding the fronts and the pedal does not go down all the way, stand on the pedal HARD and see if it won't go down then...

The proper sequence is to bleed fronts FIRST... if you had done this, you probably could have avoided this problem... but no worry, it is just a nuisance!

If you still have a problem after trying this, you might have a master cylinder problem... the seals to the fronts might be leaking, not able to build pressure...

So try this and let me know how it goes, and DON't FORGET: Your rating is my ONLY compensation for helping you!

Thanks!
