  • Greetings from the UK

    Hello guys, my name is Blackie and I'm a bike addict from the UK! I recently acquired this 99 Wildstar (I don't think you have this model in the US but it's basically a Roadstar in different pants). It's a bit of a mess and needs a good sort out. I currently have the back end off doing a mod to fit a 200 tyre and re instating some kind of fender mounting as the PO cut it all off! I have the caliper mount figured out but have I missed anything? Any advice or suggestions would be welcome. I also have an issue with the front brakes. The bike has after market levers fitted and although the front brake works well the lever travel is excessive, coming alll the way back and almost toughing the twist grip. I have made sure there is no air in the system so I am thinking that the master cylinder is the wrong size for the standard calipers. Anyone have any info on standard mater cylinder size?
    Thanks for taking the time to read this and have a good weekend!

                        Question: Is the master cylinder on the front brake stock? I also have aftermarket levers. When I pull the brake lever, the closest it gets is 1.5 cm from the grip. This may be a dumb question, but when you bled the brakes did you make sure to fill the reservoir up? I recently bled my brakes, and when I was finished the level of the fluid is actually above the sight glass...…
                        Just a thought. If I'm all wet in my assumption I'm sure someone will catch it and set both of us on the right path.

                                        I think it's aftermarket as it has skulls on it! Bleeding was correct but thanks for your input and thanks to everyone for the greetings.
