Nice post Bryan. Like the brakes:thumbsup:Mtn. Biker123 said:
AW, mine have never felt firm. I've always had good power and modulation. The problem I had was the rear would fade like having air in the lines.airwreck said:thanks! I'm up to 4 bleeds now, will keep trying but bringing some back up brakes with me to BC. Wondering if I have a bad hose connection, or air trapped somehow. Also read about lubing the pistons as a sticky piston might contribute to the mushy feel. I could put my goodridge lines on too, is it the same fitting for caliper and lever?
He said he was going to "ride his bike". So posting "chur" on the Turner forum was what he meant. We'll probably double his meds, see if that helps.FoShizzle said:chur
You may already be doing this, but just in case you're not, make sure you're rolling on the diaphragm instead of plopping it on top. You risk trapping a lot of air if you don't roll it on.airwreck said:that's what I'm thinking, air is trapped and getting the caliper hanging down vertically from the lever, lots of tapping, etc. is what it will take. I've had good luck before with tapping while the lever is squeezed.
Squeezing the levers on our saints and lx's is waaaay firmer than the new xt's.
