I disconnected my rear brake line to install a rear hugger. when i disconnected both ends, come fluid leaked out, but not alot. after i was done i reinstalled everything and bled the rear brakes. after i was done, the rear brake doesnt work at all. i bled almost half the cylinder and still NO pressure on the rear brakes. anyone know whats going on? thanks

Yeppers, keep on bleeding. You have a air pocket in the line still. Also why did you remove the rear brake like to install a hugger. I have never had to disconnect one in order to remove or install a hugger.

the hugger had a hole for the brake line to run through, resulting in me having to disconnect it. ill keep bleeding, but in the meantime, does anyone else have any other advice? thanks

You need a vacum pump. Most auto parts stores carry them. Ask for the "mini-vac" it's a hand squeeze suction pump. The master cylinder is so small that it's almost impossible to pump bleed. You hook it up to the nipple and suck the air out. I know this is the only way to do ATV's and judging by the size of our rear brake master I'd say this should do the trick.

Think about how air wants to get out of the system and bleeding should be a snap.. The rear line running horizontally shouldnt be much of a problem as the front ones are.
