    hmm - suspect you still have air in the system mate..

    These days I will only bleed brakes and clutches with an Eezibleed... it uses the preasure from your tyre and all you have to do if fill the bottle with new fluid - connect it all up and then just crack the nipple and watch it flow out.. You could also need new fluid in there if yours has too much water polution.

    Happens over time mate hence why a fluid change is recommended every 2 years. Wont have happened during the change so to speak - but over time the brake fluid gets contaminated and needs a change.. With an Eezibleed you can do this on your own no problems..

    If its not been done for a year or two you will defo notice the difference.
