Fitted hand gurads ans broke front brakes.


Recommended Posts

Fitted my hand guards. But accidentley (i say that loosley) undone a bolt holding on my brake hoses to my fluid container. And have no pressure in my front brake lever. So im guessing i have to now bleed my front brake?

I have to front calipers so do i bleed one at a time?

Also the bleed nipples look pretty old and knackered, so im going to WD40 it up and hope it doesnt snap off 😩. Just gotta pinch the 8ml ratchet fron work.

Also on my throttle its tight against the hand guard so its not twisting back to idle. So going to space it out with a few washers, will this sort the issue)

Cheers, a rather un-mechanically minded wannabe

Hi Ross. Well done for having a go yourself, but it sounds like you don't have sufficient knowledge yet to be working on brakes and throttles. Get a good mate involved, buy a workshop manual or take it to a mechanic.

The hoses were right in the way of were i needed to connect my hand guards so had to move them out the way a bit. My dad is going to help me bleed them tonight. But the bleed nipple does look lik its not going to budge
