XY brake bleed

hey, I have an XY with 4 wheel disc brakes, and it feels since yeaterday that I have almost no brakes at all WTF!?! before then it was fine, just curious what it may be, and if I should give the brakes a bleed. Also I'm not exactly sure how to bleed the brakes, so any help would be great.

thanks

Re: XY brake bleed

there are a couple of things you should look at first like is there any fluid in the master cylinder if there isnt look to see where it might of leaked out easiest way i think is to put a little bit of brake fluid in the cylinder and pump the brakes and look at all hoses, lines and calipers for leaks and also check the back of the master cylinder to see if it is leaking down the front of the booster if so you will more than likely need a new or recoed master. if you have any doubts take it to or get a mechanic to take a look ,better safe then sorry
