    hayes mag - air lock - how do you fix this??

    Hey,

    the oil wont run through the 2002 hayes mag system. I'm told it's a problem refered to as "an air lock". How do you get enough pressure to push the piston back out, or whatever one must do to fix this problem??? Again, the mag lever has no resisitance and just flops against the bars.

    Here is the link to the Hayes tech manuals http://www.hayesdiscbrake.com/tech.cfm You will need to bleed the brakes if you have a spongy lever feel.
