    More HFX9 Problems

    So I tried tightening the lever today turning the bike over, removing the rear wheel, pushing the pistons back together and pressing the lever after that. It appears that only one piston is working...After a while, there's no power anymore, i actually have to pull the lever all the way into the handlebar to stop the wheel... did i just let air into the system or something by accident? Think i need to rebleed the brakes? Will that solve the issue of the non working piston also>

    Probably already had air in the system, and when you flipped it over, the air got into the line or caliper. Air will restrict proper piston movement. A bleed should do the trick.
