When changing pads you don't have to bleed the brakes.

Are you sure you are bleeding them corrertly?

Pump them and hold, crack the bleeder, let some fluid out, close bleeder, pump and repeat.

Make sure the res is full and keep on bleeding. If it doesn't pump up then the master cylinder is bad or you have a leak

Master cylinder is bad, you have a leak, hose plugged or caliber is bad.

Master cylinder bad, get a rebuild kit
Leak repair (hose, caliber seal, oil bolt washer)
Hose, replace
Caliber, rebuild kit


Front brake the handlebar lever has the pump. Are you getting any fluid out of the bleeder? If not,I would remove the hose from the caliber and see if any fluid comes out.

when you bled the brakes did you also bleed the master cylinder and lines at the junction?

if not you may have air there as well and it will cause this.

as you bleed you'll have to have the cap on the master cylinder.
