Hi there,

After bleeding the rear brake, I noticed that the bottom of the reservoir diaphragm has started to detach when I was going to put it back in. Is that normal? If so, then how often should it be replaced?

Old age and old fluid will be the culprit, As a quick fix superglue will do the trick. I change the fluid at least once every 2 yrs, Original diaphragm looks good as new.Pop a new one in to be sure Smile Smile

More proof that neglect is the biggest enemy of the mighty brick.
