If they don't go firm after few days then there is probably still air in the system. At least this applies to car brakes. I haven't done bike brakes but I would suggest to repeat the bleeding process. Check carefully for leaks and there might be a gasket problem. This I can say from a car braking system experience.

Mushy brakes on 2008 Chevy 4wheel drive pickup


mushy brakes can be from air in the system or weak rubber brake lines expanding under pressure. I would try bleeding the brakes starting at the longest line first

Brakes r mushy,i changed the master cylinder better for a week then mushy again then good again for about a week,have been doing this for 6 weeks,fluid doesnt go down,cant find no leaks, but air comes out...


Did you bench bleed the master cylinder? You should try bleeding the lines going to the master cylinder too, just bleed them same way you would a caliper, only your loosening the lines a bit, not a bleed screw. Then of course, for good measure, bleed each wheel.

Let me know how it turns out.

1997 FORD F250 XLT 4WD - Had a hard brake pedal with hardly any brakes while standing on them. Replaced booster and wheel cylinders at same time now the pedal is mushy and no brakes.


They need to be bleed again all four wheels but your vacuum pump may be bad since diesels don't have vacuum then have to have a pump, check that the booster one way check valve is good if you can blow thew it both ways it's bad, to bleed start from the wheel farthest away from the master cylinder pump the brakes 5 times and hold down then open the bleed valve keep doing this until you get clear fluid out of each wheel once you have done that if it is still mushy and you know you have vacuum re bleed with engine running this will help push more out with power assist. most like the hard brake pedal had to do with no vacuum check out the pump. You may also have to reset the 2 way check valve if you need help with this let me know.

Brakes are mushy on my 2000 Ford Focus.


i would say your brakes are getting worn out because if the m.c. is low the only reason its low is because your brakes are worn down the fluid doesnt just disappear unless you have a leak just take look and see if anything is wet underneath.
