How many miles since the rear brake reservoir and caliper was rebuilt with new seals, springs and o-rings?Hi guys,
Last weeks I've spent some time cleaning and lubricating the clutch cable, callipers, pistons --- it has 3 in the front --- installing new brake pads. My bike now feels like you are riding a brand new 2020. So far so good.
I've had this 2013 Honda NC700SA for more than a year now and I don't know if I got used to everything being tight as the bike system was messy and dirty.
The problem with the rear brake is that It depends on the speed when I press the hear brake first slowly my foot goes all the way down and it seems like it is not working. If instead of keeping my foot I start to pump it 2 or 3x, then it starts breaking hard.
If I press the front one first and then the rear one, it breaks hard and starts getting soft.
If I press it abruptly, it gets pretty hard and works as expected then gets soft
The ABS system has some kind of little tank above the engine to release the pressure from the brakes. When I press the front one, you can hear a little air noise, but when I press the hear one you can hear I loud one at some point.
I already checked the system and there is no bubbles, no air so again I don't know if because of the fact that everything was a mess, dirty as **** and I got used to everything being tight and now everything is smooth I am kinda lost about what is the normal behaviour.
I don't know if somehow there is still air in the system although nothing is coming out. I am just scared of having to use the breaks and they are not working as they should.
It might be a silly thing that I missed or this is the normal behaviour. Thank you guys for any tip.
