Folks,



I'm sorry if this post is a bit of a nuisance but having got bike running again I'm so anxious to get it on the road. I have mentioned brfore that I find it impossible to bleed the brakes. We have tried just about everything ( except using a big syringe.....but am thinking of that). However, someone mentioned to me that having changed from single caliper to dual, and having used a "splitter" to feed both, that I should have changed the piston in the lever, as I may require a larget or stronger piston to service the new set up. Can anyone help me please , any assistance would be much appreciated. I have checked the older posts relating to brakes but cannot find a solution.



Many thanks, best regards.

Shep,



Many thanks, you're always on the ball. Will try that tomorrow or Monday. Talk to you soon. Thanks again.


No problem.Let me know how it goes.



If you do need a new MC there's quite a few alternatives around

Shep..



Are you talking about a MC that will work on a CX from a different bike? If so, what are these bikes? Is it that it just needs to have the same handle bar size? Oh....I'm sure it needs to have the same hose connection.

There are universal ones around and ones of other bikes that can be used.Most7/8"(22mm) ones will work.



Also Wemoto(Well known trusted supplier) do a nice one,

There are service kits available but I wouldn't use them preferring to get a new MC rather than repair a 30 year old one but that's just me.
