Brakes on earles fork front end
« on: March 28, 2020, 02:09:48 PM »
Anyone have issued trying to bleed brakes on earles fork front ends where the calipers are underneath, about 4 o'clock position?  I can't get pressure to build in my system.  Everything is new except the body of the calipers and the body of the master, new internals, new lines etc.
What am I missing?

You have more diagnostic options. These are among them.
  • Empty the master cylinder reservoir. Verify that neither of the ports in the master cylinder piston is clogged. They can be cleaned with fine wire.
  • Verify that the piston moves smoothly and fully through its stroke.
  • If those conditions have been met, try this.
