I changed the rear pads and now my caliper is pressing very unevenly and I have no feel in the pedal. I tried bleeding it some and both pistons extend but it won’t put enough pressure on the rotor to have pedal feel. Rear piston/pad made enough contact to blue/burn the pads concentrated pressure I guess. When you press the pedal you can see the piston cone out a bit and goes back in. Could it be more air? My master cylinder? Any help is awesome thanks.

Does the 08 Vegas have ABS? And did you by chance accidentally let your rear brake master cylinder go empty while bleeding it after you changed your pads? If yes to both questions, I believe you need a scan tool to operate the ABS system while bleeding, in order to get the air out of the ABS system. Just an uneducated guess as I know little to nothing about the Vegas bikes.

Im pretty sure it doesn’t have ABS but I will definitely try bleeding it more and get back with you.
