installed the master cylinder kit & pumped the pistons out, cleaned 'em up.
man, bleeding the brakes was a mish. ended up rigging a squeezy bottle up & squeezing fluid back up thru the system from the caliper end, even that didnt get all the air out.
went to the rebel manual Shocked it said, pull lever in, let bleed screw off, then re-tighten, then let lever out slowly. Did this about 10 times whilst refilling reservoir, a bit of air came out each time, & it ended up good.
front brake feels real good now.
Im used to bleeding car brakes but this seemed much more of a mish than that, dunno why?
still got a couple more things to do before it goes in for compliance.
