Re: Weird brakes

I'm having similar problem on my CGT, and it has no bomb.  I suspect bad
MC, but will try a thorough flush and bleed first.  Symptoms are
reminiscent of what happens when the fluid return passage to the
reservoir is blocked by dirt.  When the brake pedal is fully up, there
should be a way for fluid to return to the reservoir.  After a
centimeter or three of travel, this passage gets blocked off as the
piston starts its pump stroke.  That is how pedal travel or booster rod
length can be part of the problem too.
