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.

Cool thanks for the suggestions.

I'm going to go loosen the axle and retighten to spec later tonite and see how she feels.
