This is best done with a vacuum pump hooked to the bleeder on the caliper. can however be done by filling a clean jar with brake fluid and hooking up a tube to the bleeder valve and puting the other end into the jar. open the valve then slowly work the brake. do this until no air bubbles show in the jar. this may take awhile and several attemps but ussually works

Replaced frnt pads and calipers now brk peddle is sponge even after bleeding frnt brakes


You still have air in the system and must continue to bleed the system to get rid of it.Also you may need to pump the brake peddle for a couple of minutes to bring the brake pressure up again when the job is done.Do not continuously pump the brake peddle.Have a friend depress the brake peddle slowly as you loosen off the bleeder screw,have them push it to the floor and hold it ,tighten the bleeder screw.Foot off the peddle and repeat. Keep an eye on the fluid level in the master brake cylinder and add as needed. This can be a frustrating job and can take a lot longer than you might think.
Just relax, take your time,don't panic.Good luck

Back brake pedal lost pressure. how can I fix it?


You will need to bleed the system to get the pressure back. The best way to do that is to start at the banjo fitting right at the rear master cylinder and crank the banjo bolt loose while holding pressure on the brake pedal. Only crack the bolt loose about 1/4 turn and be sure to shut it off before letting go of the brake lever to pump it again.

Back breaks not working


Hello birddman70...sounds like you have an air trap in the system.
No fluid to the caliper or through the caliper to the bleeder? If there is no fluid at the end of the brake line then move up to the bottom of the master cylinder and check for fluid there. If no fluid there you might need a master cylinder rebuild. It's a bit tricky getting the air out of the rear cause the cylinder is lower and tiny air bubbles are slow to work their way out. I try not to open the system if the fluid level is low enough to retract the caliper. If you try to bleed again rock the bike a little before you pump the pedal to help allow the bubbles in the master cylinder surface.
Good luck and i hope this will fixya up...

Soft front brakes after bleeding the brake lines,


One easy thing to try is clamp the front brake lever overnight. If there are any air bubbles in the system they should be compressed and in theory work their way to the highest point in the system - the master cylinder. Doesn't always work but the price is right.
My experience has been air enters the calipers more than it does the master cylinder due to miscommunication between the person squeezing the lever and the person opening the bleed screw. They do have bleed kits these days that make it a little easier.
