    Front Brake Recall

    Looks like Piaggio has issued a front brake recall that includes 2013 and 2014 Manas.

    Owners may contact Piaggio customer service at (212) 380-4433. Piaggio's number for this recall is PA2ZZQ1904.

    AF1 posted this up on their Facebook page. Does anybody know if it applies world wide or are US Mana brakes different to European spec?

    Or you can fix the issue yourself in about 15 minutes if your bike is experiencing the problem, which if it was I would of thought anyone who owns one would of found out by now.

    Replacing the master cylinder means breaking in to the hydraulics. That means a complete brake bleed which on an ABS Mana is a king sized pain in the arse.

    It should be possible to reverse bleed the front brakes via the bleed nipple on the master cylinder. Then you won’t push any air into the ABS pump.

    But it's only the adjustment of the actuating plunger that is wrong. It doesn't justify replacing the whole wretched master cylinder! That way lies madness!
