    I installed a set of floating rotors on my 06 streetglide Sunday. Brake lever pulls all the way to the grip and if pumped enough will eventually stiffen up to the point where it was prior to the change. Bled the brakes Monday and thought I had it licked as the lever was stiff with the bike in the barn. I started the engine and as I was moving it to go for a test the lever again went to the grip. Stopped the engine checked all over again pumped it up, it stayed up. Started the engine it goes to the grip again. Any thoughts? I've searched the site for similiar but couldn't find anything resembling this.Thanks in advance. Ride Safe, Keep the dirty side down

    Some times when the piston moves to far in the master cylinder the seal will start to roll over causing fluid to by pass, loss of pressure, if bleeding does not help rebuild or replace master:s
