Rear Brake repair kit
« on: June 19, 2016, 03:52:20 PM »



Hi everybody,


I need to revive my rear brake- too spongy and a small oil leak from the valve. Any suggestions on rebuilt kit that I need to order, seals, etc plus a pair of brake pads.


Thank you,
Vas

The rear brake is a pig to bleed properly, unless the bike is upside down! It can be done with a vacuum bleeder but I have never found one that fits the Master cylinder reservoir cap properly. Another trick is to force the pads apart quickly with a good  pair external cir-clip pliers and this squirts the air in the system back into the reservoir. This works well for the front brakes too.

Rebuild kits available also from www.motomeccaspares.com

Any problems then let me know. I have got a few new calipers as well if that becomes necessary having dismantled your old one. New anodised aluminium pistons are also a good idea, as fitted to the Goldline F08 / F09 series as standard. The old original steel ones aren't available any more. Thank goodness!

Cheers,
