Okay this is my first post here so go easy on me...
I've been running my '05 Juicy 5's since late 2005. I have bled the front 2x in that period of time. I've bled the rear brake at least 5 times. My rear brake seems to get stinkin' air in the line waaaay too much. It's like I bleed it and it's 100% perfect for about 1-2mos and then it feels squishy and there's very little lever travel before contact. I bleed it and it's fine again.
It's not like I'm doing crazy DH...it's Kansas. The pad contact seems to get closer when my bike sits in the sun. (warming stuff up?)
They don't leak any fluid...dry as a bone. I'm very happy with that.
Is it time for new brakes? Did the 2005'ish genre of Juicy 5's have a seal problem?
If I get new brakes, I'm probably going to wait till spring and be an idiot and throw down for some Code 5's. I know that I don't need them on the XLT, but for $160...why not throw myself over the bars?
