    Well I will let you all know when I get them going.

    Lunatic--Sadly, I am leaning towards your last comment "quality of components". Pretty simple systems and I never had this sort of issue ever.

    Like I say, they worked just fine when I put the bike up--no leaks, lots of fluid etc. True, I do not know bellows from brownies but you get the drift.

    Silver, Yes I parked the RX and have done all my biking for the last year on the Uly. It is my high miler and have done many 5-600 mile days. I keep it around(EBR) in case anyone comes to visit and needs a bike to ride.

    Wow Opto, thats rare to say the least... and to BOTH of them simultaneously?

    I'm just spitballing, but I wonder if it's a combo of condensation in the fluid (brake fluid is hygroscopic) and being frozen in your garage? I'm guessing its not heated and you're way up there where theres more mooses than peoples

    No matter, re-build kits are less than $20 and it's a cinch to pop out the snap ring to swap the pistons, flush and bleed with DOT 4 like the cap says. EZ PZ.

    Actually rarer yet as I checked the rear brake master and it is pretty funky also- a trifecta! The bike never froze as I keep a bit of heat on --There are canned goods in there as well as laundry so freezing would be a disaster.

    Believe it or not but we have electricity to the property and everything. I think there are considerably more drug addicts then moose in the region.

    I have been thinking of Mendicino County quite a bit of late.
