It finally happened, my front brakes are shot!

I went to start up the SV this weekend and finally, the front brakes are gone. They'd been acting funny, I would have to pump the lever and it'd return to normal, like air in the line. I'd check the resevoir and it was fine.

Anway, this time the lever just goes all the way to the grip and the system doesn't pressurize. So, I have the PARTS I need, I just need to find the TIME to do it.

Anyone in N AL want to work for some beer?

Seriously though, what's involved with replacing the front brake system, time wise?

It's not too hard! A lot easier if you have a helping hand though...I work for beer but the plane ticket would be a bit much LOL.

Do you have a leak anywhere?

That's what's odd, the resevoir is still full. So, no, not that I can see.

Plane ticket eh? I'll book you on a NWA non-stop DTW to HSV.
