Hawes and Back

I went out on an early run to Hawes and back yesterday on the ZX-9R to test the brakes after I had overhauled them.

I had a good run on the usual roads to Hawes and back and stopped at the Penny Garth Café for a Coffee and Muffin in Hawes. The brakes felt OK but where a little spongy, the ZX-9R is a real pain for getting all the air bled out. So over the next week I will keep the brake lever pulled back over night. This usually manages to force any air left in the system to the bleed valves over time.
