Brakes Issue

Hi Guys,

Just added fluid to my brakes for the first time today.
A couple of leaks that where easily sorted.
But my fronts dont seem to work?
Bled a full container of fluid through both front but still the same.
If I move the calipers back, pumping the braks they slowly move forward etc but dont seem to have any grip.
I am thinking master cylinder? The front and rear are new, came with pedal box but that was two years ago.
I have rear as 0.7 and front as 0.625.


Cheers!

you could dismount the calipers to bleed them.

I would say that the calipers are on the wrong side, as the bleed nipple has to be at the top





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

It seems obvious after the event, but a number of people have been caught out by it.
