Somebody will know how to fix this, so save me time and tell me. Bleeding my brakes today and fronts went OK and on the rears>>>the pedal doesn't come back up all the way unless you pull it with your foot. What causes the pedal to do this?? I am thinking either M/C or a caliper. Dual M/C setup, JAMAR m/c's, stock type calipers, rear disc brakes. thanks

did you remove the plunger on the rear brake m/c when you were bleeding the front brakes? and the vice versa.(when your bleeding the rear brakes remove the front m/c plunger?

Check all your fittings sounds like air to me or maybe trash in line

Never had anything on either M/C apart. Nothing leaking on fittings, just don't want to buy parts that I don't need. Any other ideas??

Do you think there may be rust or corrosion down in the M/C plunger may be hanging or bypassing
