Rear Brake Fu(king Up - May 26, 2011, 05:47 PM

I purchased a bike a couple weeks ago from an individual.

When I test road the bike I noticed that I had to press the rear brake pedal all the way down before it would start to grab.

I flushed the rear brakes to see if that would fix the problem and it did for a while.

Just rode the bike and noticed that it's back again.

Any ideas?

It's an 07 Zx6r.

Can't be riding with faulty brakes.

Oh yea...... I forgot about that Good idea.

I'll try that next time.

Just in case I decide again in the future that I would like to have a functioning rear break, anyone have a idea of what the problem could be?

Most likely air/moisture is entering the system through the lines or caliper nipples. I suck at mechanical stuff though so I'm just guessing.

^^Yep^^

Is it the OEM line? Thats usually what happens, replace the brake line and banjo bolts/washer, you should notice a difference.

Guess I have my Saturday morning project.

maybe bad master cylinder on the pedal. If the seals go bad they dont create pressure. A new one is probably less than 50 bucks on ebay. Make sure the seals around the caliper piston arent leaking. Get the whole set attached to the rearset already if you can

If it makes you feel any better the rear brake on my 07 zx6r blows too. I like this idea of getting new lines for it though. i've always just thought the rear brakes were just that weak.
