CBR600rr Front Brake Issue
« on: January 12, 2016, 02:21:32 AM »
Hello There,
This is my first post in this forum and I have already enjoyed readying many of posts here.
First of all I have got to say I have gone through most of post related to Brake issue but I have done most of them and still not useful.
I have bought a CBR600rr 2010  about  four months ago. The front brake was fine for about one and half month and then I decided to check on front shock absorber( I hope this is what they call it  8) ) which I took to a garage for this matter.
On Next day I felt that front bike is not as it used to be , within two days the leveler went all down as there was not space for braking .I was careless enough not to notice that there was a  little twist in pipe between res and Brake cylinder which I came to know when I was about to do bleeding. I did the bleeding from clippers both sides and up (near Cylinder)and for almost a week it was fine and again brake leveler loose issue was back .
I went to the same garage and he did the bleeding which again after a week the same issue was back. I was doing this for a month and even I thought to buy a cylinder rebuilt kit ,but even that could not fix my issue.
The thing I noticed every time I do bleeding is that , there is no air coming out from two bleeders near clippers side  but there is air in bleeder near brake cylinder.

Is there anyone who has faced such an issue or can give me any tips or advise in this regards.

I'm not sure what a brake cylinder is, but if you have air in the line, anywhere, you're not bleeding them correctly.

Make sure you bleed from the brake master cylinder last, after the calipers. Make sure you do this with the little reservoir bottle uncapped, and add fresh fluid as you bleed it out. After the bleeding, you need to squeeze the lever a dozen or more times to build up pressure in the lines. If after a week the lever goes all the way to the grip audio, you likely have a leak somewhere.
