Strange brake behaviour after replacement brake pads
Hi all, hoping someone can offer some advice here: Bike is a DL1000 K7
So I've replaced my front brake pads, as I've done many times before without issue. Removed and cleaned up pistons, replaced seals and bled brakes through.
What's happening is that when i pump the brake lever, the pistons extend. As i pump, i can feel more and more resistance as expected. Great. But if i let go, wait 2 seconds, my next pull of the lever extends right into the handlebar with no resistance. Again, i pump and pump till i feel resistance, and wait a second, next pull does the same thing again, and we're back to square one.
My rear brakes were done without any issues at all
I've bled the system thoroughly so i'm confident there is no air in there. I'm using the same pads and seals as i always do, and as far as i can see, there is no brake fluid leaking anywhere at all.
Sound familiar to anyone?
