Question about 2003 Suzuki SV 1000 S
If the linkage from the brake pedal to the master cylinder is okay, there would be only two reasons you have no pressure at the brake caliper. One would be a broken hose (you would notice brake fluid on the ground). The other would be air in the system. Using a vacuum brake bleeder (Harbor Freight) connect the bleeder hose to the bleeder valve screw on the caliper. Make sure that the master cylinder is full. Apply vacuum to the caliper bleed screw and then loosen the screw watching the vacuum needle on the bleeder tool. When the needle goes to about 5 tighten the bleed screw and then apply vacuum with the bleeder tool and again loosen the screw. You will have to do this numerous times to **** the air/fluid out of the system. Do not pump the vacuum bleeder tool while the bleed screw is open. Make sure the master cylinder does not run low of fluid while you are performing this vacuum bleed.
