My rear Formula RX hydraulic Disc brake has no feel to it. It's on or off. How can I get it so that there is some travel in the lever before it clamps down really hard?

Did you overfill it?

Try to take out a little bit of fluid. take wheel out, spread brake parts apart. rotate brake lever so bleed port is pointing up.

Open bleed screw, take out small amount of fluid. Catch it with a rag, it is corrosive and will eat paint, skin etc.

Brakes were a take off from a new bike. I just bolted them on.
Thanks - I thought I might be able to drain a little Bfluid out.
