Howdy all
Tried searching but came up with nothing.

Installed new Galfer lines front to back. Problem is that the left front caliper won't bleed. MC and right front both bled through as they should and are ready to go. But I cannot get my brake lever to hardly budge to bleed the left front caliper, that was before AND after I ended up bleeding the MC and right front.

Any one have any solutions that would be great. Only thing I can say for sure is that if there is any blockage its where the two banjo's bolt to the MC. Since no fluid comes out of the left front brake line.

Thanks again everyone

If U can get a syringe and some tubing, try to bleed the brakes again from the bleeder valves at the brake caliper...U would then be pushing the air up and out of the MC...

Thanks cortayack

The thought had crossed my mind about going backwards just was not sure if that was a smart thing to do or not, and since I don't have the proper tools to do that.
Have you had or heard of similar experiences with this type of brake mod getting halted in this manner?
Thanks again for your help

Has anybody else had any experiences such as this when it came to bleeding new brake lines?
Any extra help would be great since I am anxiously wanting to ride and get a feel for this new upgrade once the damn thing bleeds for once....

U well not have any problems, bleeding the brakes... Its eazier because you are actually pushing the air forcefully up the brake line and out the MC(the lid is off)...

For my back brake i took the caliper off & held it above the mc so that any air in the line would go / get to the caliper.
As it's only a couple of bolts for the front, thats what I'd do just to make sure.

Just to clarify with my brake line problem.
I am unable to get ANY fluid into and through my left line. It's as if there is some sort of blockage somewhere in the line itself. The MC banjo bolt appears to be clear after troubleshooting
Thanks again for the help guys.

Try blowing through the line to see if there is a blockage or not. I'm not sure if it'd be a good idea to put one end into a bottle of water, so just use some break fluid and blow through the other side and see if it bubbles.
