Hey everyone,

I have a zx636 2006 model and I noticed after not riding it for around 2 months that the front brakes lost almost all of the pressure.
I got one of my mates that is a mechanic to bleed them for me and they where perfect until I stopped riding it again for only a few days.
Now everytime I bleed them it works fine except if I dont use them for two or more days. They stay good if I pump the brakes each morning and night though.

Anyone know how to fix this?

thanks

There must be a way that air is getting into the system. So there is a leak in/out somewhere. If no leak, no problem. I would try putting pressure on the brakes and looking for fluid leaking. If you don't find a leak, look at your master cylinder.

Look in the master cylinder fluid reservoir and see if there are two small holes in the bottom. If they are plugged, a wooden toothpick will open them up.

Usually if you're leaking fluid, air gets into the system making braking "spongy".
