My first post, awesome site guys. I just put hand guards on my 84 Xt600 and loosened up the brake hose to a downward angle instead of straight out to get the guard mount on. In just the split second i lost the bleed in the system.
zip ties, duct tape and wd40 work miracles.
I left my brake lever zip tied down over night came back this morning pumped it twice and was as solid as ever.
It desperately needs the brake fluid changed, only one problem.
my master cylinder cap is stuck, i cant get either screw to turn. At least not with hand force and a standard #2 screwdriver. I suppose i will try a tap or two on it with a impact wrench. worst come to worst i will drill out the old heads of the screws and hopefully be able to grab the remains with pliers.
You guys have already saved me a huge headache and ideas on getting the cap unstuck?
