GTS I already see the problem - lack of chrome wheels............




Either that or as most do it was front brake happy on a non-abs bike.

I get used to my beemer with abs which shuts down fast and strait then get on the 919 to find out when you start shutting down for a corner that the back does an easy lock up and almost ruins your day.

I think the moment I said Mity Vac this thread got hijacked so my apologies to the original poster.
thats generally not a good idea.
if you push the cup past the hole, it can damage it.
ive seen it happen a lot.

no issues with the mc, just doing a standard flush...then lose pressure after.

That is from the wife. She used to ask what all us guyz did behind a closed garage door so when we would have wrench days she called it the "Gayrage".

Inside joke and I just got used to calling it that.

Even if the lever feels firm after you're done bleeding there can still be air in the system, and lever feel will get worse as you ride. Water isn't the only thing that lowers the boiling point

Not to be confused with brake fade caused by the pads themselves.

An evacuator or a power bleeder works just fine, but everybody, including me, finishes off with a simple pump, hold, crack.
Yep
