im having a right job trying to bleed the front brake , the two calipers are now linked together with a link pipe , and opperated from the front brake leaver, with no risidual valve fitter yet! there blead , but the leaver is very soft , theres nothing there,

anyone got any ideas???????????????
I hav'nt done this modification yet,but i wouldsay you got air trapped somewhere.Fill resovour with brake fluid pump lever many times,loosen left bleed nipple, pump lever a few times,see if trapped air is being expelled.Tighten bleed nipple,continue pumping lever,loosen right bleed nipple to expell air.It may take a few goes to remove air lock.What sometimes works is when resovours full loosen left bleed nipple pump lever till fluid comes through, continue pumping till pressure is felt then lock bleed nipple,repeat on right caliper.Good luck!!
