I know this isn't tractor related but I figured we have some really good mechanics on here and maybe someone has seen this problem before or can point me in the right direction.
As you may know our Son just bought a used 2006 Suzuki Blvd. As I was going over it I noticed the front brake pads were worn. So we got a new set of EBC Double H pad's. Took the old ones off and installed the new pad's. Cleaned the caliper in the process. Went to pump the front brake lever to get pressure back in the system and nothing. Lever goes all the way to the bar and virtually no pressure although the brakes do activate (I can spin the wheel and hit the brake lever and it does stop the wheel). Loosen the mounting bolts and I now have a full lever and pressure. Tighten the bolts down and nothing again. I put on of the old pads on with a new pad and it works fine but put the two new pads on and nothing when everything is tightened down.
I'm thinking it has something to do with the thickness of the new pad's but I'm not sure what. I have cleaned the caliper, pistons, bled the brakes (just to make sure). I have changed out I don't know how many front and rear brakes over the year, (Just recently changed out my front brakes on my bike) and I have never seen a problem like this. This is driving me nuts so any help would be appreciated.
