Take the master cylinder off and bench bleed it, put it in a vise, fill it, put your thumb over the hole, sqeeze the lever. Move your thumb slightly to let the fluid/air squirt out until only fluid comes out, no air. Reinstall keeping it full of fluid, try and let the fluid gravity feed down the line, watch the fluid level, could take a while. Retry bleeding.

How to bleed the brakes


The CBRs are easy to bleed, the bleeder looks like a grease nipple on the brake assembly, ususally has a rubber cap fitted, use a ring spanner and open it.
Close it again, insure the master cylinder is full of good quality brake fluid, then pump the brake lever and continue till you start to feel some pressure build up, hold the lever with the presure on and open the bleeder, you should get some air and oil.
Do not let the lever go until you close the bleed valve, repeat this action as required till you have good brake action.
This action applies to both front and back brakes, the big advantage with a bike is you can reach the lever and the bleed valve and usually do not need an extra person

1995 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing rear brake pedal has no pressure


Hi, Anonymous no matter how many times you try to bleed a brake system you can end up with a spongy lever/pedal because there is always a handful of air bubbles that absolutely refuse to be evicted from an airline, depending on the angle of the dangle, using conventional purging methods. You have 2 options:
1. Back bleed hook up a vacuum pump at the caliper and suck out the trapped air bubbles.
2. Pressure bleed this requires special equipment that most reputable shops will have and is guaranteed to get all air out.

Trouble bleeding front brakes on GL1100 (1981), no apparent leaks & tried new master cylinder, any ideas please


If there is air in the master cylinder ,then it will not pump fluid. Try loosening the banjo bolt holding the brake line onto the master cylinder and pumping the lever a couple of times till the brake fluid gushes past the sealing washers. Then tighten the banjo bolt and bleed the lines. Once the master cylinder is pushing DOT 3/4 brake fluid then bleeding the lines should be easy.

I replaced the front tire on my 1996 Honda CBR500F and now I cannot get the front brakes to work. How do I fix this?


If you forced the brake pads back in the caliper to ease installation of the front wheel, they'll need to be bled. Bleed the left one first, then the right.Connect some clear 3/16 hose to the bleeder nut and catch the fluid in a drain pan. Pump the lever slowly until you get some pressure, hold lever down and open the bleeder nut. Close bleeder nut before releasing brake lever or you'll **** air back in the system. Repeat until no bubbles come out of the bleeder. Keep an eye on the fluid level in the master cylinder and add fluid throughout the process making certain you never run it dry or it will **** air in as well. You may not get lever pressure until both sides are done.
good luck!

HARLEY- 02 DYNA WIDE GLIDE front brake bleeding problem master rebuilt caliper also lever builds preasure but when bike is started and moved the lever bottoms out NO BRAKES


Starting the bike has effect on the front brakes and I doubt moving the bike does either. The problem sounds like you're using an improper procedure to bleed the brakes.

First, fill the front master cylinder reservoir with the proper type of brake fluid. Then, bleed the master cylinder. Use this EXACT procedure. Squeeze the lever and hold it. Then loosen the line from the front master cylinder and allow the pressure to bleed off. Release the brake lever. Repeat this procedure again. Do not allow the master cylinder reservoir to run dry during any part of this bleeding process.

Then move to the caliper bleeder valve. Squeeze and hold the brake lever, open the bleeder valve and bleed off the pressure, close the valve, release the lever and allow the master cylinder to refill. Repeat until you get a full firm brake lever. Top of the master cylinder. Wait a few minutes and test the brakes.

If you cannot get anything to work out, look in the very bottom of the master cylinder reservoir and you'll two holes. One is relatively large and the other is very small. Using a small drill bit or a strand of wire, make sure the small hole is open. I've seen trash plug this hole and the brakes not work correctly. DO NOT MIX DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRAKE FLUID. The correct brake fluid to use is printed on top of the reservior top.

Make sure you test the brakes before riding the bike, improper brake servicing can lead to serious injury or death.

Good Luck
Steve

How to replace front brake line for 03 fatboy (flstfi) and bleed the front brakes system?


Just take your old line off and replace it with the new line. Be careful because the brake fluid will damage your paint if it's DOT 4. One you have replaced the brake line, fill the master cylinder with the proper brake fluid. Open the bleeder valve and let gravity do it thing. Usually once the fluid starts to flow out of the bleeder valve, all the air is gone as well.

But if the brake lever still feels spongy or no brake at all, first bleed the master cylinder. Squeeze the hand lever and hold it while you loosen the union bolt on the end of the master cylinder. Once the pressure bleeds off, close the valve and repeat the process until you get no air bubbles. Then, move down to the brake caliper and do the same thing until you get no air and a full brake lever. You must do it in this order exactly. Squeeze the lever, open the valve, close the valve, let go of the lever. Do not allow the master cylinder to run dry during the bleeding process.

Good Luck
Steve

Hi, The lines have to be bled to get the air out. There is a small fitting on the calipers to do this. The best procedure is to use a piece of tubing and a glass jar. Fill the fluid reservoir up to the top. Put some brake fluid in the jar, barely open the fitting, squeeze the brake lever and watch for bubbles, pump the lever until there are no more bubbles and it tightens up. Be careful not to run the reservoir too low and get air back in the line. This should Fixsya!
