Question about 2005 kawasaki KX 250 F
The screw is an easy fix, take it to a local hardware or auto store and they should have something to replace it with. If you stripped the hole however, you may need to get it re-tapped.
Sounds like you may have air caught in your line from not cracking and pumping the air out after filling the lines.
The following are a few things to think over to see if they might be the problem:
Did you make sure the resovior was full the WHOLE time and topped up as you put the fluid in? Even a tiny amount of air in the lines can cause spongyness.
What Fluid did you use? Was it a DOT3 or DOT4 fluid?
Is the Bleed Nipple done up again tightly?
Did you have enough suction on the bleed nipple as you ran the new fluid through?
Is the resovior full again now that the brakes have fluid in the lines?
Check these things, or try re-bleeding the brakes. Remember to tighten, compress and crack the nipple after running the fluid through to push any air out.
Check the video for a walk through on how to bleed them and crack the air out.
Hope that helps!
