Worst brake bleeding of my life. I had to pull the master off, and hold it with the lever down, but the reservoir higher than all of the hose to get it bled. Eff this radial master cylinder for not having a remote reservoir! Super fun to have to take the screws out, fill, then tighten the screws back on so the lid wouldn’t leak. Geebus! Great firm lever feel now, I just need to get the pads replaced with better ones. That should really tighten up the lever feel too! Doing the back now, should be easier. I have a non ABS bike btw, and still had to lift the tank to change the front. If I had it to do over again, I’d have gotten the race brake lines, that comes with a longer banjo bolt and dual banjo fittings at the master cylinder. It also routes the two hoses down each half of the forks. It would’ve been better, but these feel great! Sorry, I cannot get these photos to orient correctly, don’t know why!
