Bleed bleed and bleed some more.....only way for air in is an accidental introduction or a potentially inward leaking master cylinder seal....What brand master cylinder is it? I know you said it's not the original.
We'll look at it when you get to the Crow's Nest.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Before long someone will need to bring a bike lift to the Gap. Some of you guys would enjoy fixing little problems as much as riding.

True that!

I have done nothing to really get ready, I might be changing and balancing tires and bleeding a clutch line in front of the crows nest, (or in the comfort of the big man's trailer if he decides to haul that big ol'bitch up there again!) .replaced the damaged forged Brembo MC with a new rcs16, but still having the same symptoms, so I will bring a whole bottle of RBF (motuL) and bleed bleed bleed like Ed said...

I don't think I would mind all that much if I didn't ride a mile,
if I got to wrench on a few bikes and hang out with this group...

I recall working on Al's bike last year using a lift someone brought.

that is pretty much where my head is these days. If anyone wants to do a crazy engine swap next week, I'd consider it.

I have a pneumatic bleeder I can bring if we have a compressor. I usually bleed the system completely with it, than do it the old fashion way just to be sure.

This could have been useful last year... My engine dropped a valve last year before the trip 🙂

I'm waiting to do a front brake upgrade. Can always bring the parts with me.
