Simply take the old hose off and replace it with the new hose. Fill the master cylinder with the proper fluid and then open the bleeder valve down on the caliper. Allow the fluid to run down until there are no more air bubbles coming out. Close the bleeder valves on the caliper. Refill the master cylinder. Squeeze the brake handle and hold it, open the bleeder valve and allow the pressure to bleed off and air to come out, close the bleeder valve, release the brake lever. Do this several times or until you get no more air out of the brake. Do not allow the master cylinder to run dry at time during this operation after you get the new hose on the bike.

Need to replace front left brake hose


There are a few reasons to replace the front brake hose on your vehicle. The most common reason that you would need to change the hose is a leak. If you have a leak in your brake hose, it can cause your brakes to malfunction. The front brake hose supplies brake fluid to your front brakes. The front brake hose runs from your brakes' master cylinder to your front brake calipers. When the brake calipers do not have the required amount of brake fluid, they will not push down the brake pads on the rotor and stop your vehicle. However, replacing the front brake hose on your vehicle is not a hard project. Though this is an easy repair, there are a few very important steps that you must follow to ensure your vehicle is safe. Follow these steps to replace your front brake hose and get your vehicle safely back on the road.


Step 1 - Set Up

The first thing you need to do for this repair is to jack up your vehicle and remove the tire. Place your jack stand in safe area so that the vehicle can not fall. This is a very important safety measure. Next, place a container under the front brake hose. This will catch the brake fluid for proper disposal.
Step 2 - Remove Old Hose

Before you can put on your new front brake hose, you have to remove the old one. To do this, take your line wrench and back out the hose fitting in the master cylinder. After you have that fitting loose, remove the fitting on the brake caliber. Once you have the hose loose, use a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps that hold the hose in place.
Step 3 - Installing New Hose

Now that you have the old front brake hose removed, you are ready to install the new hose. This is the reverse process to step 2. First, take your line wrench and tighten the hose fitting back into the master cylinder. Next, attach the other end of the hose into the brake caliber. Finally, reattach the hose clamps to keep the hose in place.

When tightening the hose, it is very important not to cross tread the fitting. This will cause the fitting to leak. Also be careful to not overtighten. You can easily break or crack the fitting.
Step 4 - Bleeding the Brakes

The final and most important step in the repair is to bleed the brakes, which involves getting all the air out of the front brake hose. This will make your brakes work properly. To bleed the brakes, you need someone to work the brake pedal on the inside of the vehicle. You need to stay near the brake caliber.

Have the person inside the vehicle pump the brakes 3 times and hold the pedal down on the third time. While he is holding the pedal, you need to back off the nut and the caliber. Do this process a few times until all the air is out. Then replace the wheel and test drive your vehicle.

Front brake pad changing


Pads are easy to be removed ,a 5/8 sockett will loosen the 2 caliper bolt holding it on.they are behind the rotor on the right hand side,(as you are looking at the roror),about 1-2 inches down from the top of the pad for 1,and up about the same distance from the bottom of the caliper for the other.hope it's some help.
Once you find and remove these bolts as is described above the caliper should be rocked front to back and lifted up until it slides off of the rotor. Be careful that you don't pull it hard or drop it once it's loose, there is a brake hose attached that doesn't allow too much travel, It may be weak from age.
This line should be inspected at this time. Once this is in your hand the pads should press out fairly easy. If this is the 1st time your doing this pay careful attention to how the pads are placed. There are also clips that hold them in place, be careful not to damage these.
The front of the caliper will now seperate from the back by sliding off of 2 pins.

Changing front brake pads


Doing the brakes is about as easy as it gets. I do recommend spending the $60.00 for a manuel if you are going to work on the bike a lot. You can also check with your local library, I used to check one out until I bought my own.
