Brakes

I Bled my brakes today on my 929, everything is working great but the rear brake is not as tight and sensitive as it was before we did this today. Any ideas on how to get the rear brake as tight as it was? There is no air in the lines and the rear brake works fine, just not as tight as it was before and taking me a little more time to get used to. Thanks for the advice.

Stay off that rear brake. You don't want it tight and sensitive. It could cause you to lock up the rear wheel.

Not sure, it sounds like you didn't bleed them correctly. Also remember it takes 3-4 pumps after you've done a brake job to get back to normal. (I don't know if you changed pads too so that could be it)
