Front right brake problem
So I go to flush out front brakes oil out and replace it with new brake oil before riding season. The front left bleeds fine but can t get a drop out of the front right side. I figure the caliper seized up during winter storage.
I tried bleeding right side but could not get any pressure.

I took out the caliper spreaders and without any effort seperated the brake pads.
OK so next I tried to see if I got any brake fluid from the brake line.
Nothing! Pressure from front brake handle nothing. The left side works great. I read a thread that some 85 hand some front brakes work with rear brake application. (Front and rear brakes linked. Still nothing if I apply front and rear brakes.

So my question out there to the forum is.
Is it possible that I have a seized or plugged brake line for the front brake line or a siezed split block if brakes not linked?

How does one change the brake line? Do I have to take the entire front cover off?

Thanks for any quick reply.

Well after posting questions and reading a lot of other post and links I quickly solved the mystery.
I do have a linked brake system. Therefore when bleeding both front and rear, foot brake pedal, must be pumped together. Now the entire system works great up to factory specs.

Well riding season got a late start but by May 1st we should be riding thd old girl again.
Till then keep the rubber down and shinny side up.
