I was running the stock brake stuff and they were always soft, but I put a new brembo master cylinder on and brakes are still awful! I can pull the lever all the way back to the grip! What else should i try???
Did you try bleeding the banjo bolt up by the master cylinder. An Air pocket always gets trapped up there because it runs slightly up hill.
A brembo on an SV will feel some what squishy because of the vastly improved hydraulic leverage ratio. It will actually flex the entire system.
After the brake system has been bled and it feels like you have enough firmness in the system to stop you, put your helmet on and go for a ride. Be carefull the first time you use the brakes, you will not have to squeeze very hard to stand the thing on its nose.
I rode Ed's bike after he installed his Brembo, Wow!! it was a huge change.
