    poor performance from clarks hydros, help

    Hi, i am new to hydros and recently got some clarks skeletal hydros but seem to have poor performance from the rear.When i checked the reservoir it seemed to have some foreign bodies in it, would this be the cause?. I cant get the rear to lock at all while riding and the lever goes in all the way and hardly stops me at all.

    It really sounds like there is air in the system. Levers going all the way to the bars is a sure sign of air in a hydraulic system no matter what brand of hydraulic brake.

    Re-bleed, and you should get a similar feel as the front.
