    Exclamation Back brake failure, Need Quick Replys, Working On it now

    I have recently topped up the brake fluid and changed the brake pads a couple of weeks agoo and since then my brakes seem to be getting worse but now they do not work att all, i have checked when brake pistons and they havent sezied, also the brake lights do not come on when pushing the back brake, this is due to brake fluid leaking from just under where the brake sensor wire are (i think). Have'ent a clue what to do or where to start. QUICK HELP WORKING ON THE BIKE NOW. Thank youu

    im sorry bro all i can suggest is to undo it have a look around and then seal around the washer with JB WELD and they tighten it up and leave it to dry for 30 hours. but it worth waiting for rs patricks input

    Hope you flushed the brakefluid of the fairing straight away with plenty of water, or you might get a really nasty suprise in a week or so...

    rinsing it now wont help as the brake fluid has already "eaten" into the material and after a while paint starts to peal or/and it just crumbles to dust if its a plastic fairing.

    Top up the fluid and bleed the brake - ah - saw you did that already.

    And please, never try to fix a brake fluid leak with JB weld.
