I don't know much about hydraulic brakes, so I have no idea why it would do that, or how to remedy it. Seemed as tho no matter what I did the brakes would not "firm-up." I was fearing that I'd have to bleed the brakes which wouldn't be a problem, 'cept I don't have a bleed kit.
I somehow ended up laying the bike down on it's side and when I pulled it up, I squeezed the brake lever of the end of the bar that was sticking up and could tell there was a little more firmness in the lever. I squeezed it again and a little more. A couple more times and it was back to normal.
I then laid it on it's other side and did the same thing. Sure enough, both brakes are back to normal. Whew!
I may still end up ordering a bleed kit but I don't think I need to do it for a while. Or maybe I should. How often should you bleed brakes?
