bleeding 1999 vfr800 rear brake

Post by Coully » Sun Jul 02, 2017 11:10 am

Hi folks, recently bled my brakes on the veefer.... got off to a poor start and bled the wrong nipple on the front (for the linked system) but only a little bit....and i believe i rectified that.... got the fronts bled and fluid changed ok...they're working well now
I'm struggling to get the rear to work...i believe i've bled them sufficiently ...i've checked for air in all the lines (at the nipples) ....but the rear needs to be pumped to bite sufficiently. got all the pistons out far enough for mininmal pad clearance to disc but need 2-3 pumps of the rear brake to really get good pressure and then after after a wee while its the same problem have to pump the brake again.

Any responses appreciated...even just to call me an idiot :log

Sounds to me like you still have air in there somewhere.
