When you bleed brakes make sure bleed nipple is pointing downwards and the whole caliper is upside down so the fluid runs through the whole system, each time i change pads on mine i have to do this for some reason. Hope that helps

Replacing caliper on 2002 dodge neon

The first thing is to make sure the caliper piston is all the way in, the caliper then slides over the brake pads and bolts on, make sure you have the correct caliper on the right side, the way to know this is when caliper is on the little bleeder screw should be on the top, if it is on the bottom then wrong caliper, try the other one,

After caliper is on you will then need to bleed the brake system,
This all depends on what happened, if the brake fluid did not all leak out and caliper was just bad then before removing brake hose off old caliper pinch rubber brake line with a pair of needle nose grips or there is a line crip tool that crips hose to avoid fluid from leaking out. this makes bleeding easier , other wise you will need to make sure fluid is full and start at the right rear wheel bleeding and move to left rear then right frt and last left front, you will need to keep an eye on the level of brake fluid and add as need to keep it from going empty,
you will need some one to pump and hold brake while you bleed them, pump pedal three times and hold down while you open bleeder screw, this is to be done to every wheel about four to five time to make sure all air is out . good day. note if pedal feels low bleed again wont hurt anything just a little more fluid lost.

1998 gsxr 600 brakes lock on, new master and

Hi, If there is excessive air in your system after reassembly of master cylinder, the lever will have a spongy feeling about it and possible inconsistency or will have travel, bleeding the hydraulic system is best carried out by two people, remove the reservoir lid, top up over half and replace lightly to keep out dust, get a old glass jar, and a clear pipe that pushes down into the top of the bleeder valve, which is on top of the caliper block, and sink pipes other end into a little brake fluid in the glass, ensure there is always sufficient brake fluid in the reservoir tank, top up later if needed, use open spanner for bleeder valve, unscrew the bleeder valve one half turn and squeeze the brake lever as far as it will go, but do not release it until the bleeder valve is tightened again, repeat this a few times until a no more air bubbles come from the plastic pipe. Also, ensure all other joints are secured in this brake system, When all the bubbles disappear, close the bleeder valve, remove the pipe and install the bleeder valve dust cap. Check the fluid level in the reservoir, after the bleeding operation has been complete. Reinstall the Diaphragm, and the cap. Do not use the brake fluid drained from system as it contains minute air bubbles. There was the question of the locking pads, after the air is removed from the calipers, and there is still a prob, I might have the answer

Rear brake caliper is not engaging. plenty of brake fluid.just bought new brake pads, and still no breaking.

Try bleeding the caliper. open the screw and squeeze the brake allowing fluid out and then closing the screw before opening the brake lever again you want a nice stream of fluid so have plenty of it around. maybe a seized caliper doubtful though

Excess travel on front brakes of a gsxr 750 ws

You need to make sure master cyl clean possibly needs new seals or master cyl,but try this remove pads keep pumping cyl so that pistons come out further place some wood or plastic between disc and pistons thinner than your pads that should stop your pistons coming out and will allow more fluid into the caliper,then press the pistons back to return fluid back up pipe to pressurise valve good luck it may not work first time just keep pumping .

My rear brake in not working on my 03 suzuki tl1000r motrcycle

sounds like the piston in the caliper has can check this by removing the caliper and then trying the brake. you should be able to see the piston moving in and out. if it isnt then you have found the problem. if they are moving it could be that the pads need to be cleaned up on the sliders and use copper slip to re fit. hope this helps
