bubbling noise at brake lever?

Postby jeannot18 » Tue Oct 30, 2012 10:49 am

Hi guys, just replaced my brake pads (front and back) on my Canyon Nerve, the brakes are Magura MT4 (I think - it's what it says on the lever). I have tried the bike yet on the trails, but when I brake with the rear brake, I can hear (and see) little bubbles just under the lever. I take it that when I pushed the pistons back on the caliper, it must have push back the brake liquid. Should I worry about that or leave it as it is? Thanks

Thanks! :P . Was a bit worried because I have never bled the brakes and don't even have a kit to do it.
