Re: bleeding brakes

Between each stroke of the pedal, you may not give the MC enough time to fill up the piston area before the next stroke.

Down, up, hold for about 3 -5 seconds, down, up hold for 3-5 secs, keep until a firm pedal , then bleed. Repeat as needed on RR first then LR.

If line from front to rear replaced, it will need some time in bleeding.
If all else fails, rent a pressure bleeder.
