    Juicy 7 - Brake piston popped out. Air in system? What now?

    The pistons had been sticking in my Juicy 7's making the brakes drag a lot. I removed the pads from the front caliper and was pushing the pistons in then pumping the brakes to move them back out, to try and loosen them. I think I pumped the brakes too much as one of the pistons seemed to pop most of the way out. Its back in but now I dont seem to be able to develop any pressure in the system at all.

    Have I let air into the system? I would have thought that even with some air I would still be able to develop some pressure. Do I need to bleed the brakes now?

    Thanks

    yeah... you need to bleed the brakes.... you are generating pressure... only that the air compresses a lot (comapred to the DOT on your brakes), so the air is compressing before the pistons move....

    Bleed should do the trick.
