Similar situation happened to me. I kept bleeding bleeding, lever kept going soft every time. I called Magura and they said bad master cylinder. They shipped me a new one free of charge in a matter of a couple days. Great service.
CharacterZero said:I want to preface this with the statement that I am and have been stupid happy with these brakes, as they have held up for 3 years with only two bleeds and a couple sets of pads - low maintenance, powerful, etc...
So I bled my front brake a few weeks ago and got it dialled. This was (coincidentally, hopefully) my first time bleeding them. I followed the instructions on the site and got them all dialled - took no time at all and the front brake felt great after the bleed. I noticed within 2 weeks that there was a loss of power and the lever actuation point was moving closer to my grip, then yesterday it is all the way in before it grabs.
I have noticed a slight "tic" sound about halfway through the lever pull - maybe the rubber grommet is out of the fluid and pulling all the way in? I have notice NO leaking/drips upon inspection - but it seems like I might be losing fluid. The pads are about half way worn.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem with these or other brakes? Thanks in advance - I need to open it up tonight to get it dialled for tomorrows ride.
