hey guys, i have rear cb wide 5 brakes that are not engaging properly. I also have fronts, new metal lines, stainless hoses, new 67 master, etc. What have you guys done to make your rear discs grab properly?? I installed a cnc residual valve but it has pipe thread fittings and leaks when I try to adapt them to the flare fittings! Any suggestions?? I am willing to adapt/ modify any part of the system to keep my front tires from locking up, thanks

I ordered a residual valve from CB Performance when I installed four wheel disc brakes 2 and 1/2 years ago. The brakes have been working great all this time. The only maintenance item I did was to replace the brake fluid 6 months ago.

What check valve are you using? Does it go to the rear or front brakes.
