Default Brake Pressure...

I installed 4 inch forward controls. Bled the rear brake. But now it takes more pressure to get the brake to engage. Before, I could lock up the rear with very little pressure. Now, putting my foot "through the floorboard" to get any feed back. Filled the reservoir with DOT 4 and pumped the brake A LOT. Any tips or something I missed?

make sure you hold the brake lever down and tighten the bleeder screw , before letting off the brake lever ... Its much easier and more efficient with 2 people ....

4 inchs might be to long for your leg to apply full pressure

Sorry for two replies. I don't have an issue with full pressure. Just an issue with pressure fromnthe brake pedal.

That's a big understanding Mags.
Brake pedal or lever mushy? Gotta bleed the air out. No two ways around it guy.
