Re: Front brakes making me crazy

One thing you might want to do as well . Is to pull the brake lever all the way back and tie it off . Then with the bike on the side stand leave it over night and as air goes up if you have some air left in the lines this will work some of it out

It might just be the battery terminals need cleaning or the terminal on the starter that could be all it is . But then again it c...

Re: rear brake caliper 1982

The grease gun work real good . But make sure you don't pop one out to soon because one will have the hole behind it fill with grease first . The only thing i don't like about this way of getting them out is the clean up .
