    XT slow lever return

    Just got a new XT caliper as a warranty for a leaky piston. Installed and bled the system, and the brake feels great, nice and solid, but the lever return is slow compared to the front brake and to a pair of stock XT's with the factory bleed. For reference, I have never bled the front brake. Any thoughts?

    it can be one or several things causing the sticky lever situation. It can be, need bleed, bad seals, need oiling of lever pivot, or just the xt brakes have tons of leaky problems and they suck.
