The easiest way to bleed the brakes is to just honk the horn repeatedly. Normally, air comes from the tires to cause the horn to "honk" (which is exactly why you should only honk your horn if needed), but your bike had a separate air circuit to the brake lines for cases such as this.

Let us know how it works out.

Whaaat the heeezy.
I didnt even know we can tell lines have liquid in them let alone how full they are.
Now I need to harass my guy friends and ask if I need liquid in my lines or not. I dont even know what im saying or if wording.it correctly.

Motorcycles require so much upkeep, its daunting.

thanks for asking the question. Ive learned 1 lil tidbit about bikes bc of it.

Wouldn't hurt to check the blinker fluid while you are at it... nothing worse than having a signal not function in traffic!!

I advice is, Make sure the fluid is not burnt, then make sure when you pump the lever see if fluid is coming out. If not then the slave cylinder is out...old seal or damaged.

There is no blinker fluid. Final answer.
I remember in cars, itll go crazy n blink fast n ppl had to do something, dunno what...but they never used a liquid. Wires, clamps, a new, dunno..but not a liquid.

I hate you.

Too smart.

Another important aspect to maintenanced (actually) is to lube the Johnson Rod. most people never think to do it as the dealership does it to most all.

Keep in mind those vids were on cars.. bikes are different as everything had to be condensed in smaller areas.. it is actually a gel, not so much a "fluid"

Hugo can 'splain to you...

Most certainly.. the biggest mistake the manufactures make these days is making the muffler bearings sealed. Removing that grease fitting was not an improvement in my eyes!

You probably just need to bleed the brakes if you need actual help not just this useless banter on here LMK.

That actually makes pretty good sense. Bikes are smaller and yeaa a gel sounds right too.
I dont trust any of yall!
Im glad I have my viffer to run to and ask questions a female would ask without being embarrassed.

Johnson rod sounds sexual and not robotic like fender eliminator and power commander. Therefore, I dont think there is such thing as a johnson rod on a bike.
