    Leaking Hyrdaulic leaver

    Hi. I've recently been loosing oil from my Tektro agura Hydraulic system but the oil is leaking from the gubbins of the leaver. Does anyone know what I need to do to stop the leak. These are my first hydraulics and I don't really know much about them. Can this be fixed or do i need a new brake system?

    any help would be much appreciated.

    ... not very technical advice, but these things may leak if you put your bike upside down to work on it, or lay it down, or if there's too much oil in them. You might try bleeding them, or checking to see that the little screws are in tight?
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    I hate to say it, but your brakes aren't very high end. But take it into your LBS to have them take a look at it, you probably won't be able to do anything if you don't know what you're doing.

    And WTF do you mean by the gubbins?

    Yeah I know they're crappy brakes i just wanted to get them to stop leaking until I can afford new ones. I guess I'll just need to keep on refilling every week until then.

    Oh, gubbins means unspecified mechanical parts with unknown or no name.
