OK, so I just switched out my rear brake system, peg/reservoir/line/caliper and now I have no pedal feel. WTF?! I switched it out cause my rear peg was bent and I got whole system for cheap. I thought that by taking the brake line off the caliper and pumping the lever i could bleed the brakes, but that didn't really work. I'm not sure whats going on here, I could really use some help on this one. Thx

Your kidding right??????? If not ,then there is a small bleeder screw on the rear caliper (8mm if memory serves) . If you don't know how to go about bleeding your breaks , find a friend that does or take it to a shop.

ya more then likely if you hooked everything up right, u just got air in the lines and have to bleed it out. I got air in my lines everytime i took off the rear tire. I just didn't really know what i was actually doing and I kept unscrewing stuff. I ended up letting air into the lines and had to bleed them. Also when the tire is off never pull in the brake cause u'll have to open the pad up to get it to release so you can get the tire back into it. once again i've had to learn the hard way.
