    Front Brake Problems.


    I must thank all of the members of the Harley Davidson Community on this web site for their Helpful hints on overcoming my problems with front brakes.
    I bought a Front Master cylinder re-build kit, this cured my lever problem getting stiff pressure build up, and the brakes being locked on.

    Now Bleeding the front brakes was difficult using the old fashioned way. I read a post on this site which suggested VACUM bleeding as a way to get it done.
    I tried it with a piece of hose and a vacum pump. Ten minutes I was able to flushthe system out and have a great pedal.

    I highly reccommend this method as opposed to the pressure bleeding method.
