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.

I changed the rear brake pads on 05 Suzuki Boulevard S83 and after pumping the brake pedal I still have no pressure in the lines to engage the brakes?

Bleed the brake system, or have someone familiar with simple hydraulic systems bleed it. Bleeding removes all the air from the lines.

Bleeding the brakes ,But no fluide in the rear brakes

Check the master cylinder, pump up the brakes and crack the line at the master cylinder to the rear brakes, if no pressure and it was ran empty or is new part, bench bleed the master cylinder and recheck for pressure at the master cylinder, if you have pressure follow the brake line to the proportioning valve and crack that line before and after the fitting, good luck.

Rear brake not responding well, minimal braking when pressure applied even when lever is all the way down?

Hi, the lever should not go all the way down, sounds like you have air in your brake system, check your brake pads, if they are ok than bleed the rear brake system, the lever should never bottom out.

Rear brake bleeding problem

need a little more information.

if you are trying to bleed the brakes you can have someone push the pedal while you loosen the line just enough to allow air to escape. When it stops popping and cracking and only fluid comes out tighten it back up with pressure on the pedal. pump the pedal before loosening line to allow pressure to build up.

or by a vacuum pump and you can do it yourself $10-$40

Rear brakes might be locked up???

Firstly it might be an idea to release the brakes so you can get the vehicle to a suitable place for repair. Something has gone wrong in the brake master cylinder or the pressure valve (if fitted) although I suspect the former. The hydraulic pressure can be released by loosening the nut on the brake pipe that goes to the rear brakes or undoing the bleed nipples on the rear cylinders a couple of turns. Try to bleed the brakes enough to get them working and then drive to a place of repair. Otherwise remove the master cylinder, strip down and repair or replace.
