If it's a new MC and the dry side of the plunger is staying dry, then you have a leak somewhere in the system. After you bled the breaks, did you make sure all the bleeder valves where tight? Check your calipers to make sure you don't have a blown caliper.

+1 on RRJ's post. You definitely still have a leak someplace. Might want to check the front brake hoses also, as I have heard that they can give problems after a few years.

I would start at the MC and work along all the brake lines all the way back. Double check all the bleeder nipples, look for leakage at the front calipers and the rear wheel cylinders. You should be able to isolate the problem area before long.

Thanks for info, will start following all the lines looking for leaks. When this first started couple of weeks ago I kept an eye on the reservoir level and it never dropped. Couldn't find any brake fluid on wheels or such. Thought about bleeding all the lines again at least until I can see the new clean fluid coming out. Just thought it weird that new mc didn't even faze it.Will let you know what I find.

I have always found the rear brakes like to leak on the frame rail, behind the fuel tank. Two Suck-Ass jobs rolled into one!

Don't start on me Rog! Once the timing chain was off, I could see the cam. Started me thinking "Well, maybe I could remove the intake and pull it, put in a bigger one......" NO NO NO! I wont allow my OCD to pull me down the "rabbit-hole" any more! Saving the OCD for the Harleys and the Roadrunner. Sorry to the OP for the rant. I'm also ADD and, wait, ooooh, I see shiney things........

That's funny right there, Chris! But I'm liking the idea about saving the OCD for the Harley and the Roadrunner.

Oh, and yes, sorry OP for the thread jack. Just consider it a bump!
