Bleed the brake line (see Brake Line Bleeding).
Check the brake for good braking power, no brake drag,
and no fluid leakage.
After servicing, it takes several applications of the
brake lever before the brake pads contact the disc,
which could result in increased stopping distance
and cause an accident resulting in injury or death.
Do not attempt to ride the motorcycle until a firm
brake lever is obtained by pumping the lever until
the pads are against the disc.
