I am new to this site and would like to say thanks in advance for any responses or advice given to my question.

I took the brake line loose from the front master cylinder and lost the pressure. I am at a loss on how to reprime it and bleed the brakes. Any ideas?

Also any place where you can get parts for this bike but not at a high cost?:huh:

I take it you had a loose brake line, i take you have tightened it now. Bleeding brakes is simple, best way is to get a one way bleed pipe, if not put some break fluid in a jar, open master cylinder and top up, put spanner over bleed nipple on furthest caliper first then place tube over nipple , pump brake and open bleed nipple pump till you get a steady flow, then do the same to the rest one by one ...keep an eye on fluid level dont let it get to low. If its still a bit spungy then go back to to the first one and this time pull lever and undo nipple at same time, hold lever in and tighten nipplethen release lever ....do this a few times and all will be good...Rick

Try looking for a vacuum bleeder kit. That's how they do it at the brake shops. If all else fails take it to a place like Brakes Plus and have them put it on their vacuum bleeder. It would take them 10 minutes and probably cost you $20.
