today i bled my Avid Juicy 7s and it all went well (woohoo!!) but i did discover that there was a minor leak of dot 4 fluid from the lever when squeezing hard on the lever when the pad spreader was inserted but not noticed when just the rotor between the pads. I dont know what the specific part of the lever is called cos i'm a bit thick like that. Its the bit that says "use only dot 4 or dot 5.1" on it. Maybe its the res' cover? i dont know.
I have tightened the two screws a bit (about 1/8th turn) and that seemed to stop the leak a tiny bit (bearing in mind it was only tiny to start with).
Is there any way i can stop the leak? or did it only appear cos the pads were pushed far back? should i worry?
Other than that, my first attempt at bleeding brakes went well apart from my choice of day to do, it was persisting it down by the time i finished!
Any help is appreciated.
