Okay fellas. Got my rear tire mounted today and after it was done, all of a sudden had no rear brake compression? Any ideas?

Try bleeding the brakes. May have gotten some air in the lines.

Bet the rear pads became dislodged. Remove wheel, Pull caliber and Put all the brake stuff,(clips, pads, etc) back correctly. I bet that will fix it. Also when re-installing wheel, make sure it is centered correctly, measure both sides, axle to pivot exactly.

Probably spread the pads to get the wheel out which would squeeze the brake fluid out of the caliper. Try bleeding the caliper after inspecting the pads etc..

The rubber cup in the rear master cylinder is likely blown - you'll need a MC rebuild kit. This is a common problem on the rubber Sportys

Try pumping the pedal up a few times in between opening the bleeder to allow pressure to build up do this several times. If you fail the master cylinder will have to be rebuilt.
