Re: k1200LT Rear Brake Trouble
On an 01, there are some pretty easy tests. First, as you did, loosen the top banjo on the master and work the pedal. You should get a good flow of fluid. Next, move to the ABS unit and loosen the rear top bleed fitting and work the pedal. You should get fluid flow there. If you get fluid from both those points, then the feed tube from the reservoir is not blocked or twisted preventing fluid flow and the short hose from the MC is not blocked. Move to the banjo on the right side at the front of the line connecting the rear caliper to the steel line and loosen there and check again. Steel line not blocked or twisted if you get fluid. Then loosen the banjo on the rear Caliper and work the pedal. If that all works, then the system is not blocked. Don't overlook the feed tube from the reservoir to the MC. If that is twisted, nothing works.
