Bleeding the brakes on a 929

just got my 929 back from a friends garage and noticed that the front brake lever is really mushy (when you squeeze the lever it doesnt go back to its normal position, kinda like a clutch in a car that needs to be bled. How do you do this on the bike, or is it something else?

Re: Bleeding the brakes on a 929

Analog is right man. There are TONS of people on this site that have bled their brakes. Just search for it. However, it's easy. You should get a brake bleeding kit. You can find them on most of your favorite motorcycle parts sites. They're usually cheap.

Good luck
