I am in the process of converting my F400 to disc brakes and I wanted to ask a question.
I have heard that turning a bike upside down can be bad for hydro disc brakes as far as putting tiny amounts of air in the system that are lurking in the reservoir etc.
My concern is that checking my headshok will require a wheel removal and usually turning the bike upside down to check the shock pressure.
Can any owners give me their thoughts and experiences with this incuding the disc system that they are running.
My current favourite choices are Magura Louise BAT for hydro, (I am an expat in Germany and these brakes are some of the cheapest and easiest to get parts and shop service), or Avid BB cable if the hydro problem is real. (Real easy to service anywhere and relatively super cheap, but lacking in feel compared to hydro's).
Many thanks for any comments.
