It rained most of the morning today. As I went into my garage to bleed the brakes on the CBR for the third time, I noticed the sun came out and I was in the mood to try out my camera, so I rolled out the Motard.

After bleeding the CBR’s front brakes twice, the brake lever still had a very soft feel to it. It still braked, but the lever had too much play before there was any feedback. I figured there was still an air pocket trapped in the calipers that I couldn’t bleed out, so I unmounted the calipers and compressed all the pistons. This let me bleed out the remaining air, and I think it did the trick. The brake lever has an improved feel now, finally.
