Asymmetrical Posted May 16, 2011 Share Posted May 16, 2011 I just finished a brake fluid flush using a vacuum brake bleeder on my '97 R11rt. All is fine with the rear brake, but the front is now mushy. Unfortunately, I vacuumed out a bit too much from the front master cylinder reservoir so that the fluid got just slightly below the feed hole to the master cylinder itself. So I've loosened the banjo bolt and using the brake lever expressed some fluid from that point, which was weeping out with no sign of air, so I think that's okay. I've also re-bled the front brakes both sides a couple more times without solving the problem. When I apply the vacuum hose to the bleed nipple and loosen the bleed nut, it seems air is coming from the threads of the bleed nut, but no air seems to be coming from the caliper itself though it's hard to tell with the air weeping in from around the nut. At this point, I'm not sure what to do next, but the front brake lever isn't hard like I remember it and seems a bit spongy. Any thoughts about what to do next? Link to comment
