    KTM Rear break

    Post by cnbevan1979 on Wed May 19, 2010 8:47 am

    Right lads - changed fork seals and fork oil and fitted new rear pads last night.
    I have no back brake with new pads so removed old fluid and replaced with new and began to bleed after 20 mins pumping, not the good sort, still no fresh fluid coming through the bleed nipple.
    Any advice etc as I am getting deperate with IOW in 2 days - can anyone help me? KTM JON maybe....hint hint? lol

    Cheers

    go to the chemist and ask for a 100ml sirenge...and back fill the system. ie, from the caliper. ( cut a short section of rubber place one end on sirenge and other on bleed nipple on the caliper, crack the nipple enough so you can squeeze the fluid through, this will push any air out through the resivour..job done.
