I'm having some trouble bleeding my Magura Marta SL brakes. I followed the procedure outlined here, by a Magura guy.
I'm having a couple problems. With the front I got it close, but the lever has more travel than I'd like, but feels pretty stiff. The rear has way, way too much travel.
When I bleed it, I do fine until I have to start cycling the lever on the front. Sometimes it pushes fluid out of the caliper around the bleed port, but not going into the syringe. Am I supposed to be sucking with the syringe? How can the pressure go somewhere, I don't understand it.
On the front and rear, when I remove the bleed port part, it starts letting out a little fluid. I have the reservoir cap on already, so it should be holding it in, but it drips out before I can get the plug in. I'm thinking this is where the increased travel comes from.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
