Need Front Brake Pressure

Okay guy's just got my right clip on for my bike and put it on and no pressure in the front brakes. Now I'm sure there is a way to bleed the air out I'm assuming. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks in advance.

Oh and big ups to Wade for hooking me up with the clip-ons.

Keith

Make sure to bleed the master cylinder and not just the calipers. I did mine by hand the old fashion way by pumping the levers, no problems.

If there no bleeder valve then use the bolt where the line comes in. Pump up the lever then hold it in and loosen that bolt then tighten it back up. Repeat till it's firm.

Done the bleeder valves on the calipers first since I had already went and got the fluid and just tried that and got my pressure back. Will probably do all three again just to be on the safe side.

Thanks a lot for the help Josh.
