    Juicy7- Sticky Piston or Need to Bleed???

    Question... got Juicy 7 -- 8in front and 6 rear...rear works like a charm. front however right out of the box / installed worked on the first couple of grabs...then proof, nada. . . pulling the lever to the bar, and nothin' , then the next thing you know, No problems...
    Done two pretty lengthy rides with No issues. . . then i get a new handlebar and remount all levers the other day, and go for a spin . . . again no Front. keep grabbin' over and over then i feel a slight pop while grabbin' .... Brake's working ... any suggestions? got a bleed kit but don't know if thats the prob...Air in the line? or messed up piston?

    whatcha think? Thanks

    Definitely sounds like you need to bleed it. Sticky piston would be more like if you squeezed it and it worked but wouldn't retract correctly.
    What you are experiencing is probably from an air bubble in the system somewhere that you can pump away but once in a while comes back up to the main part of the system.

    Good luck!
