Front Brakes -

Pulled Front Calipers - Cleaned them up. Put a little oil on the piston bases
1 piston stuck. Put wood shim in other caliper, and worked the lever got the stuck one loose. Installed new Pads.
Went to put in "speed Bleeders" but they did not fit. #$%^&&*
Got a some air in the line with that fail...

Bleed/Flushed a bunch of BelRay dot 4 through both calipers. Jiggled the
brake lever a ton and slowly got air out.
Pinned the Brake lever back and left it right handle pointed up for a couple hours - Heard that helps a few more trapped air bubbles come up to reservoir...?
Took out and broke in pads. Pretty Smooth
* Mines a D so I bent the Rear Brake Lever down, much better control on it now
so using both brakes together works nice.
*Oberon Brake/Clutch Levers are pretty fine controllers and worth the money IMHO.

EBC Semi Sintered Brake Pads
BelRay Dot 4 : 355ml bottle is enough to do Clutch-and both brakes unless maybe you are going to flush a ton extra through.

In 2 years I'm going to Steel lines up front.
