master cylinder question, please help!
so i have been trying to get my bike back together from the last time i laid it down...
im running into a question/concern
the last piece i need is to install the read brake master cylinder and flush the brake fluid. So I installed the new rear set and mounted the master cylinder.... now to my concern: when the master cylinder is attached to my rear set, the brake pedal does not fully spring up so that the notch on the brake lever never touches the rest of the rear set.
Is this normal? I have not filled the fluid and have not attached any of the hoses. Just mechanically speaking I would think the notch on the brake lever, which is the same part where the spring for the brake light trigger is attached seems to be there to lay against the bottom of the rear set, when the brake is not applied, however there is about 1/4 inch gap.
I hope some of you might know what im talking about without pictures since I can not take any for a while.
