Not a VFR but I appreciate the experience of you guys on my problem. On My 2000 RC51, the brake lever was nice and firm, but.... the fluid was old & brown. On top of that I needed to put new pads in it too. I cleaned the calliper pistons, but didn’t remove them. Pushed them back in after cleaning and installed new pads. I bled the brakes like I have many many times, never let the fluid get too low, used pressure bleed method. but...now the lever feels very spongy and it now also creaks and makes a noise at the lever/master cylinder, almost like the Super DOT4 fluid doesnt lubricate the rubber plunger enough. it wasnt doing that before the fluid change. I can get it to firm up a bit if I pump it a few times, but it goes soft again after a while. Ive re bled 3x No bubbles at all, not a one. Im wondering if I have dirt/corrosion binding the calliper pistons and they are sticking, maybe not retracting all the way ? Ive tied the lever back over night and its firm after I do that but goes soft again after a short while Thoughts?
