06 F. Brake Reservior Lv. Question(Bleeding)
Hello, I bled the front brakes today on my 06 RR via the honda service manual and useful youtube footage. The lever feels nice and firm after going through a full container of honda dot4 brake fluid.I used a clear tube and a clear soda bottle to contain the old fluid. Through the entire tube(2ft.),absolutely no bubble were found present.
However, my issue is this. The service manual doesn't specify where the float in the sight glass should be after completion of bleeding. Adding fluid to the upper level(above site glass) of the reservior and then installing the diaphram only results in spillage in my case. What do your guys site glasses look like and is this acceptable?
Shouldn't the float be above the lower mark?
Thats the levers firmness
I wont go for a ride until I figure this out. Thanks
