Question about 1985 Suzuki Rg 250 Gamma
I have an 86 suzuki lt250 f. I put a rebuild kit in both front wheel cylinders, a rebuild kit in the master cylinder, new shoes and rubber lines but can not get pressure at the brake lever. I can get a good flow of fluid at both bleeder valves with no bubbles. Before replacing rubber hoses, blew air into metal lines to dry and clear the lines. I had no lever pressure before the rebuild and still have none $100 later, please help.
Cylinders, lines and calipers must be bled thoroughly and in order.
Start with the master cylinder.
Break the line loose at the cylinder and tighten it firmly so you can loosen it easily.
pump the lever/pedal several times,(don't worry about pressure yet). Hold the lever/pedal down.
break the line loose slightly, just enough to release the pressure. Re-tighten the line and release the lever.
Repeat this procedure several times. (4-6)
Repeat this procedure at the line just above the caliper.
Finally repeat this procedure at the bleed screw.
This takes a while but will insure that all the air is out of the lines. It dosen't take much air to ruin a great brake job.
