front master brake cylinder breather hole clearing?

Post by Drago76 on Wed 05 Sep 2018, 7:20 pm

Hello!
front brakes on my CB500S 1999 not release fully - there is a small, but drag on it.
i change brake fluid, take out brake cylinders from front caliper, clean it, put back, grease caliper, but - anyway.

read, in brake reservoir there is a tiny "release" hole, who may get clogged, and do such a symptoms, get guitar "E" string for poking in it, but opening reservair, i cant find that hole in a bottom of reservoir?

can anyone give me a clear picture with indicating, where it was that small hole?

thanks in advance...

Is the wheel definitely aligned properly in the forks? The disc isn't warped at all?

The link HERE is for the reservoir on a Honda CX650.  It may not be exactly the same but hopefully will help to locate the return / relief hole.
