  • front brake lever

    When my bike is off and parked in garage, and squeeze the front brake , the lever pressure fells normal. When i am out riding the lever pressure feels a little too firm. Any thoughts?

    Make sure you didn’t over fill the master cylinder or the fluid won’t have any room to expand when hot. Try filling it between the low mark and the full mark to see if that changes it.

      If i did decide to remove some fluid, what is the best way to go about doing it?

        Open the master cylinder to see where the level is. If it’s high, then use a straw to pull some out. Put the straw deep into the fluid, put your thumb over the top of the straw and pull out some fluid. Repeat if necessary. An elementary school science project!
