How can they tell such silly stories...I had air in the brakes and it was the first symptom of the front disc warping, before I noticed any vibration. The dealer said that the disc was forcing the caliper in the wrong direction and letting air in...
I agree with the fact that a warped disc may push back too much the pads and pistons, giving more travel to get them back on the disc. But, I don't agree for air. If the seal lets air come in, it will also let the brake fluid go out. If so, less fluid and some air would make your brakes entirely unefficient.A warped disc will push the pads (and pistons) back with the result that you get excessive travel at the lever next time you use the brakes. It's easy to think that air must be getting in.
Yes, sorry, I mis-read your post, english is not my native language.Read what I said more carefully. I never said that air gets in. I know perfectly well that it doesn't.

Be super careful with this as it can result to the brake locking on. It has to allow the plunger to fully return home, which you can only see with the reservoir cover removed.I didnt see in this thread anyone mention the set screw in the brake lever that depresses the rubber actuator in the reservoir. My lever was collapsing a bit too much and I just turned the flat head screw a few turns to tighten up the travel, might help someone still having issues after a bleed.
I feel like this can be said with almost every change on this bike :adoration: But just a few turns of the grub screw should be fine, I think if you turned it all the way in the brakes would always be on, ha.Be super careful
A few turns is all it takes to stop the pads fully retracting - It's a know issue with Ducati brakes and they can seem fine until they lock on the road, but I understand if you feel like I'm teaching you to suck eggs lol.I feel like this can be said with almost every change on this bike :adoration: But just a few turns of the grub screw should be fine, I think if you turned it all the way in the brakes would always be on, ha.
