  7. Beta evo rear brake

    Hello chaps ... Bike ....2016 250 evo Problem....rear brake feels useless ....on inspection the rubber boot that sits at bottom of reservoir was full of water and the pedal could be pushed to the bottom Took the cap off to check fluid and the rubber Jonny that's inside was wet with dirty water ...check fluid level and virtually nothing .... So cleaned the reservoir ...flushed new fluid thru a few times and bleed back up ....pedal felt right Out today and the pedal is as it should be but you can stamp on the back brake and it won't lock up ...if I pressed any harder it would have broke something Again rubber boot full of water ...fluid is fine ...pads look fine ....what you think try new pads Thanks in advance
