Hi VFRD, I have a question regarding the linked brakes (no, I will not de-link). I have ridden the VFR after winter pause and I noticed something. If I apply the front brake first, than the rear brake and let go of the front... The rear brake lever falls down by a few centimeters as if there was not enough brake fluid. Normally I would not ask but I don't remember this happening before winter and the bike just had a fluid change. It is either a bad fluid change or my bad memory. The latter being slightly more possible. So can you please go out and try this on your 5th gen? PS: My thoughts are that this should happen because of how the secondary brake cylinder works but I need it confirmed.... You know... I sort of don't want to crash...
Hi all, I'm having trouble finding answer re. my linked brake issue and hope someone can help. I had the bike on the center stand and spun the rear wheel and found that the brake lever had no effect on it. I tried a second time and pulled the lever quite hard but still no effect on rear wheel. I spun it again and tried with the pedal and the wheel stopped. I haven't tried it with the front wheel. It's as if it has been converted to standard braking but I'm quite certain the previous owner wouldn't have done that. I haven't done anything to the brake system myself but I'm wondering if incorrect brake bleeding could cause this. Neither the lever or pedal feel spongy and the bike pulls up just fine. I'm quite new to the linked brake system so any advice will be greatly appreciated.
