Quantities shown are for orders placed now. Otherwise your system has a retaining spring on the back of your pad so make sure it clicks firmly into place and your pads are flush to the pistons. But no evidence of hose problems. Oh shit, think I missed that which is funny cuz now I see it's in the thread title , link was originally emailed to me and I guess the rest was a case of seeing what you want, lol. Route bleed hose into bottle to catch fluid.
Clean all parts with a rag and isopropyl alcohol. My course of action would be a fork that could fit modern spaced disc brakes and use a v brake on the rear. The lever will feel loose for a few pumps until pistons move to rotor. Remember that your brake pads may have a return spring placed between the pads , a cotter pin or a bolt that holds the pads in place. Thanks ok I managed to get the rubbing to go away, but my lever almost hits the grip to put full pressure on the front brake. Replace your wheel and check the operation of the brakes. The best of both worlds.
Thanks for pointing that out! Finally, clean the rotor off with a clean cloth and alcohol to remove any oil or fine metal particles. They do make a little noise during their break in period, but compared to the banshee-like wailing of the Formula's, these are whisper quiet. It can be useful to use a strong rubber band to hold lever closed. I put the brand new master cylinder in and it didn't fix the problem. First vid is specific to the lever of the 9's. It was clear fluid coming out the line above so I assumed all were gone. Remove the bleeder port and then attach it to the bleeder port with the necessary fittings and hoses.
Unless you live and ride in a very dry or desert climate I found that frequent replacement of the rear brake housing or a Gore sealed system is needed to consistently get full power from the caliper. These brakes don't appear in any of their photos. Finally, bikes with full suspension go through a lot of movement so visually inspect the hose to make sure the hose has not become worn in those areas. Leave the caliper bolts loose, and squeeze the brake lever. The brake fluid was actually going between the two layers.
I've ridden hayes brakes since I started using disc brakes years ago, and Im 100% happy with them. If your brake pads are less than 3mm thick, install new pads. I rejuiced them twice yesterday and I've done it before on another bike so you can't tell me it's my error or my other Hayes Mag Nine would not be working and it grabs the moment you put pressure on the handle. Once the pads are in all the way you can carefully remove the pads one at a time by pulling them out with a pair of pliers. I use a worn out toothbrush, which does anexcellent job. Continue to alternate between squeezing bottle for five seconds and releasing bottle until no air bubbles come out of caliper.
I have disc brakes and don't have to fiddle with hydraulics. Inspecting and Cleaning Rotors The next task is to recondition the rotors by removing any glaze that may have accumulated on them. Keep your eyes open as good deals pop up all the time. Set the lever so that the bleed port is at the highest point facing directly upwards. Step 7 Release the tube clamp on the lever syringe. Cranking the bleed port in too far or the hose into the caliper can damage the body and let air in. For one thing hydraulic disc brakes rely on fluid to push the pistons while mechanical brakes use a cable under tension pulling a lever to activate a cam device with a piston attached.
I did have one problem. These brakes are excellent on the hills. I'm dumping at least eight ounces through easy John. Still, before tightening the cable, I'd recommend to make sure the clearance between the inner pad and the rotor is not too big. With the pads removed squeeze the brake lever 2 3 times and make sure the piston extends and retracts; this also helps lubricate the seals.
With hydraulic disc brakes you are less likely to encounter problems in the long run compared to mechanical discs. Hayes has been making disc brakes for years and was one of the first companies to make disc brakes for bicycles. Crystal - on that Klein - what brakes are on it? Up for auction is a brand new Hayes 160mm disc rotor. Visually check and feel for leaks where the push rod meets the piston assembly. Move caliper body side to side until this gap appears centered to the rotor.
My plan is to try and adjust them. Fill a syringe halfway with brake fluid and add your hose and all fittings required to attach it to the caliper. Anytime there is a production line, there will always be differences in quality from one unit to another. If you did bleed them properly, the only thing I could think of being wrong if you didnt crash and smash the master cylinder into something, is an internal leak in the hose. What ended up happening was my lever would slowly, but surely,move closer and closer until it hit the bars. The lever should travel about halfway through its stroke.
If your broke as a joke converting an old bike to new standards and buying the disc brakes will cost a ton of money considering youll will never get it back out an it wont even transfer to any new frame you get. It was rubbing on the fixed pad. Inspect the lever for the bleed screw. Squeeze bottle firmly for approximately five seconds to force fluid into caliper. I had to drill the adapter a little but it seems to hold up really. Install brake pads into caliper body. For Shimano and Magura you need to have the brake levers parallel to the ground.
