Question about KTM Motorcycles
Rear brake keeps failing probably an airlock but struggling to get it right @
Posted by Anonymous on
Get someone to pump the brake pedal a few times, and someone else to undo the bleed screw, it will be a small grease nipple looking thing on the rear caliper. Undo the screw then re-tighten it, holding the pedal down the whole time. Repeat until fluid comes out of the screw, then do it a couple more times to be safe. Be sure to wipe the fluid off your bike as it strips paint. Also make sure the reservoir has plenty of fluid in it before you start.

The one man way is to get a small botle( a spice bottle and fill it about a third of the way up. Place a piece of tube (clear preferably)of the proper dimension over your bleeder valve located on caliper. Then open bleed valve and presson brake pedal. If all bubbles escaped thru tube into bottle, then you may repeat untilno bublesremain then tighten bleeder valve. If bubbles remain in hose, close bleeder before releasing brake. This will probably require an assistant. Ensure you keep reservoir from going dry by filling when necessary. Repeat as necessry until all bubbles are gone from brakelines.
