my friend has an 05 cr250 and recently changed his brake pads. the next time we went riding he complained about his rear brake not working. i asked him if he put new fluid in he said no and i checked. it looked a little low so we filled it to the top and tightened her down. tried it and the pads still don't clamp hard enough they move very slightly but not enough to do anything. what would be causing this?

You own all those bikes and have never bled brakes :yikes: ? Pump the pedal a few times then while holding it down crack the bleeder until the pedal bottoms out. Repeat this, refilling the reservior when needed until no more air comes out.
