Turns out there's plenty of threads on this issue, so guess I was complaining for the sake of complaining. I guess air lock is a common issue with the rear Master. PITA, but it is what it is.
I cleaned out both holes with a pick the best I could. If I remove the line at the Master and pump it I get a good amount of fluid shooting out, but for some reason it just won't filter down into the line. It's almost as though the hole in the line isn't aligning with the hole in the Banjo bolt. However this is not the case. Even if (somehow) the OE line were clogged, I get the same result using the new steel line and Banjo bolts. Plus, if the fluid were being blocked from leaving the Master I'd get a build up of pressure, which I'm not getting.Have you considered the possibility the reservoir isn't feeding properly? ...
Don't you love electrically retarded POs? The '99 GSXR750 I had previous to the TLR was that way. Wiring harness was mega mangled and halfass repaired whole ass incorrectly six ways to Sunday. Why can't people who are clueless about wiring just leave it the **** alone?Not even the horn was spared from the previous owner's stupidity
Oh geeze... I hadn't even considered that. And now that I've eyeballed it I think you may be right on the money. Would explain why it was such a chore to get those four bolts tightened down. Thanks Ted.... you might want to start checking measurements each side of the rear sub frame in case it is bent or twisted.
