Hi all, had to replace my left hand break cylinder due the starter connection breaking. Not sure how to explain that. Anyway all installed and starts perfect. Now my rear break is lacking pressor I wanted to loosen the nipple but it's virtually impossible to get to without removing lots of parts. Any ideas?

Hi rwelford
Is this the left hand brake as in the rear wheel brake? Yeah, thats pretty buried behind the frame, plastic panels, and mechanical bits.

Does the brake engage with the brake-disk to stop wheel rotation when engaged despite the lack of full pressure? I'm curious if its something like fluid levels or air in the line.

I'm afraid I'm not enough of a mechanic to give full advise, but knowing the Mp3 I suspect you'll just need to remove the plastic or parts to access it.

Mitch's videos for older Mp3 have a couple spots on brake maintenance that might give some insight. I'll post anything else I find here for you.
