Being a sealed system, There has to be a leak somewhere. Possibly a small crack in the bottom of the reservoir, or at the left front brake which is tied to the rear break.
"Linfrantzenmeck", and "Stridelnagenhof".new cuss words?
The bike HAS linked brakes. The handlebar brake lever operates ONLY the front RIGHT disk brake. The foot brake pedal operates the front LEFT disk brake & the rear disk brake. There are a mixture of rigid steel brake pipes & rubber flexible pipes in the braking system, you will find that out when you do the routine maintenance after taking the tupperware off.Does the 99 SE have a linked system? I thought all the brake lines were rubber lines.
Just asking cause I havent had this bike but 6 months.
