  • Brake help!!!

    Just hung new pads on the front of my 02 R*. Everything was dirty but moved pretty freely.
    PROBLEM: I have absolutely no brakes now. I didn't open any bleeders or anything for air to get into the system but it's like there's more air than fluid in the lines. I have gone through 3 reservoirs of fluid so far trying to bleed them the old fashioned way and nothing is getting better.
    Is there something that I am missing? Never had this problem before.

    When I did my new lines I couldn't get anywhere bleeding them until I tied the handle back for a night. If you post somewhere other then the classifieds you'll get a quicker response

      You seem to be missing a manual, you need to bleed your brakes.http://www.werder.ee/Manual/XV1600.pdf

        Oops! I was still in the yard, irritated, and answering questions from my "helper". when I started this thread and didn't realize that I was in the classified section until I came back to check for a response. I will tie back the lever and let fluid run through tomorrow and continue the bleeding until I can get it right.

          Does the brake lever fully compress with no resistance or do you get lever resistance with no actuation of the calipers? If the latter, then maybe the pads are bound up.

            Did you push the pistons back in bores all the way to get new pads in? Odd this would happen without opening bleeder or removing MC cover. I have the best luck with using a power vacuum bleeder hooked to an air Compressor. Makes it a breeze

              I opened the reservoir and let the fluid push back up to the top like I have always done with cars and on my vulcan. No pressure at all on the lever. Going to go out and try just letting fluid run through with the lever tied back and banjos open
