Front brake no pressure at all - June 20, 2012, 07:22 AM

Ok, put bike away for winter brakes worked fine, pulled it out last weekend and my front has zero pressure at the lever. I'm planning to bleed them tonight, but wanted to see if there is anything particular I should look for?

Best way to find a leaky line, or diagnose a bad MC??

I have a set of OEM lines so I could replace the lines, but if it's the MC then I'm pretty up shit creek for now.

06 GSXR 750 though I'm sure that doesn't matter.

just the regular routine.. bubbles means there is air.. get all the bubbles out.. make sure you use a good brake fluid.

BG makes some good brake fluid.

Doesn't hurt to swap the fluid after storage anyways.

If that's the case I would be concerned with a leak.

yeah planned on getting one this weekend and doing it but my plans got messed up so had to do it today. will keep an eye out for leaks, the old fluid was really gross, so I'm betting it was never changed.
