my '99 FSR had a stupidly long plastic brake hose. I thought it would be a 2 minute job to chop off 6" and push the tubing back on. plan failed. brake hose will not push back over the barbed push fit connector despite cursing. Garden now covered in dot 5.
Its an old Magura Julie rear.
Any one know if bleeding is easy or should I get a kit with some new goodridge hose.
Unless some one local to St Neots could give me a hand with a bleed kit in exchange for beers......that would be nice!

LGF is probably the best local source of knowledge round your area.

Ian,
I should be able to help..up in Huntingdon.
I've bleed kits for Magura, Avid and Hope at work, so something should work...
PM and we can sort something out.

All the best,
