Rear Brake Bleeding problem...HELP!
I have an 05 10R and purchased a set of Goodridge SS Carboline for the front and rear. Front I did first and besides breaking one of the aluminum banjo bolts I replaced it and bled all the air out and of course it works great just as expected.
Dumbass me thinking the rear was going to be easy took the old line off, put the new one on. I was a little surprised that the Goodridge line seemed to be 1-2 inches longer than the stock line. Didn't think anything of it really though. Anyway I got everything back together and started bleeding the lines. I got the air out from the bleeding valve and also did the rear banjo bolt which mounts the line to the caliper. Still spongy so of course did the frong banjo bolt on top of the master cylinder. I did these all several times as well as shaking the bike, tilting, tapping the m/c with my hand to try to get any air bubbles to the top. Of course nothing worked and the thing is still spongy as hell. I have to basically push the lever all the way down to get any feel from it. I did a search and it appears that some other people have had this problem.
Just trying to figure out if anyone was ever able to fix this situation and if so how. I'm dying trying to get back and ride the bike since I haven't been able to since breaking the front bolt, etc. Any help would be great. I know there are certain products to buy to help do this but I'm hoping I should be able to get it out with without buying anything...or at least try everything first. My wife helps so it's not like I'm struggling bleeding them.
I appreciate any help. Thanks.
