Please help! New brakes installed and unable to stop!
hey guys, so i just installed new rotors and axxis brake pads. i had to loosen the bleeder plug to depress the piston. i made about 20 runs, and everytime i tried to stop i wasn't able to. i almost caused an accident as my brakes didn't work. i used the install guide in installs section and did exactly it stated. what should i do, or what could it be. can the brake lines get air in it, just by loosening the bleeder plug? plz, help fast!

yes, you need to bleed the brakes if you opened the bleeder valve and just closed it without bleeding..

how did you end up stopping, did you just come to a rolling stop?
