Bleeding Brakes
 
Ok I hate the brakes on my RD, I rebuilt them top to bottom and I cannot get them to work.
I have worked with closed systems before and these suck, I can't get them to work :becca:becca

Welcome to the wonderful world of the RD 400 F Daytona brake system !

Worst RD system ever made ! Even if you get them bled right, they still suck compared to other RD's brakes .

I know what crap, I am thinking of ditching them and find some 2-3 pot nissin/Brembos and make mounts for them, and run them instead of the stockers :evil

Dont waste your money. R 6 stuff is a dime a dozen these days and FZR masters are dirt cheap.

When I have trouble bleeding brakes I use a zip tie to hold the lever in overnight. Somehow the air works its way up and out of the system.

I usually will leave the bleeder cracked open, top off, while filling master, keep pumping pushing the air out. When I get a pretty good stream out of the bleeder, I hold the lever down and shut the bleeder. Then bleed normally. If I still feel there is air in there, I leave the top off, squeeze the lever, release lever really slowly (like a sun dial) and watch it pull the bubbles out, back into the reservoir. Works every time.

Mocking set up for R1 monoblocs on my RZ350. It's done now but no images.

Nice, I will probably do some later down the road, I have made mounts for mountain bicycles, now days I don't have a milling machine for the ease of making them, but I will be going south and my friend has a shop :evil . Hey I have a question, can I use a lefty side caliper for the rear of my Bike ???????, I can't think of any reason to not :ear

Ok figured out my problem, the rebuilt MC is crap, I do have another and put it on and done :evil
