    Back hydro inconsistent

    Hi all -

    Just installed XT hydros. My front brake is absolutely perfect now. The rear though is good but a little inconsistent. Sometimes the rear lever will be nice and tight. Then sometimes it will be loose and squishy. Almost like I have to pump the lever now and then to get the pressure up to get it tight. Then if I dont use the rear for a couple minutes it will turn loose again. Even loose though, it is pretty good. Just not as good as the front.

    What is this a sign of??? Not enough fluid? Air in line? Difference in hose lengths between front and rear?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like you've still got some air in the line. Inspect around the fittings, along the hose, and around the pistons for any wetness or indications of a leak. If none are present, bleed the system.
