Hey, just bled my new tokico calipers and galfer lines on the gsxr setup (srad trips and wheel and axle, 04/05 750 forks, rotors and calipers with rotor spacers at 2.25mm). it has the stock sv mc.

after bleeding the front wheel feels pretty stiff, like if i push it forwards (its off of the ground obviously) it seems like there is quite a bit of resistance. turns about 1/4 or less and then stops even with a pretty good push.

i never really bothered to check this with the sv setup so am just wondering if this is normal? could i have 'over-bled' the lines? it was my first time doing it so i'm not too familiar with problems/quirky-ness of the process.

thoughts?

Axle too tight. Is my first guess. Second is pads not aligned or bound in the calipers.

There should be a light drag on the wheel but it should spin semi freely. A gentle scraping is all that should be heard.

Good Luck.
