Hi!My shadow family,I’m bobbing out my 1999 vlx600. I’m in the middle of painting my rims to put the whitewalls on. I thought was a good idea to paint my levers and switches too. I put my master cylinder back with new fluid and currently have no front brakes... do I need to bleed them to get my front brakes working again?

If you removed the banjo bolt and line from the cylinder then you absolutely need to bleed your brakes, you should also replace the copper crush washers on both sides of the banjo fitting if you removed it, they’re a one-time use sealing washer.

Post some pics along the way on your bobber journey. I am always looking for new ideas for my "never finished" bike.

Always bleed after any part replacement, and half the time after replacing pads. It’s a very small, closed system.
You got pics of the parts painted? I’m in the midst of finishing my bobber by doing the final bits of repainting and repolishing bits. Always looking for a star to guide my journey 😁
