Hey why would my Hayes Purples with Razor Rock levers, Goodridge lines, pump up at the lever? When I'm at elavation (Snowshoe WV) riding down the mountain I'll hit my brakes and if I hit them immediately again the lever will engage further out. If I wait 1- 2 seconds they will engage normally again. Its like the fluid doesn't drain back into the bladder quick enough. Maybe I should bleed them at elevation? Or the Dot fluid (Ate Super Blue Racing) is acting weird, but I recall I changed to the blue fluid to try to cure the pump up. seems it only started after I replaced the master cylinders I got from Icycles last June. Also doesn't happen when I'm riding locally in PGH. Could it be heat expansion? Although I can't recall my other Hayes Mag's equipped bike doing it when I had it up at Snowshoe. What are those 3 small holes and one larger hole in the cartridge supposed to do Randy? How important are those small packets of bladder lube? I did use them, figuring it would help the bladders expand and sit in the lever housings.I did bleed many times thinking I had hot air expansion. Thanks, looking forward to Ride !
