So, the credit goes to @GirlsRideToo
if this works, and @shadetree
for 'splaining it!
Took the advise also. Changing ALL the fluids & filters. Brake fluid looked original!
Probably not, but who knows?
First time EVER, I could bleed & flush the brakes by myself! Bonus.
Hooray, the pics worked!
Changing the fluids and filters let's you know it's done right. There are quite a few stories on the forum about engines being destroyed because the oil filter was put in backwards.
Bleeding the brakes without asking 10 questions on the forum, stripping the screws on the master cylinder and breaking at least one fingernail is monumental. Congrats!!
I'm really curious about the story behind your 300. From the pics, it looks like someone did some restoration recently. The plastics are so nice and shiny, the mud guards are in great shape, the frame and shock, that I can see, appear to have been painted, the racks look great, can't see any rips in the seat and it looks like there's new paint on the rims. If you'd care to share the history I'd love hear it.
