Question about 2001 Yamaha YZF-R1
Hi,i am assuming you have no front brakes,bleed the master cylinder before you try the calipers,to do this,simply pump up some brake pressure with the lever,hold the lever against the bar (fully applied)then crack the banjo bolt that holds the brake line onto the master cylinder,you should see air escape,retighten the banjo bolt,repeat the procedure untill all the air is gone,it doesnt take much air to stop the master cylinder working,once you have the master cylinder bled,then rebleed the calipers in the normall fashion,dont forget to put a rag down to protect the paint on your fuel tank,brake fluid loves paint...hope this helps,,cheers
