Front Brake Hose Obstruction - How to clear?
I've acquired a 93 KLX650 that has some sort of obstruction in the front brake hose. I've tried blowing it out with compressed air at about 100psi to no avail.
The bike sat up for several years and the front brake lever was basically frozen. I have removed and cleaned the master cylinder and the piston, and I now have good pressure and can easily bleed the air from the master cylinder.
The main hose, however, will not pass fluid - I managed to get some of the old fluid (really nasty looking reddish brown stuff!) out via compressed air, but something nastier must now be lodged in the hose.
Any suggestions on how to clear the hose? The hose itself is in fine shape (bike only has 3000 miles on it), and I would prefer to clear it out, clean it out, and reuse it than to get a new one. If a new one is required, is Galfer still a good hose?
Many thanks for the help!
