    Default Metric Street Stock brakes

    Just can't get a good pedal feel. It does have dics in the rear. Tried a 1" single master. Then a tandem 1-1/16 master. Get no air when bleeding the brakes. What master should I be using. Or should I be looking at something else

    You probably need pad spacers in the rear.

    Likely air still in system.
    Look for highest point in line run. Bleed there. Or make sure master cylinder is the highest point.

    Take the cover off master and move the pedal a short stroke. Let off and see if air appears.

    Keep working it until you get no more air.
    Push pedal and hold for few seconds. If air comes again, keep working it.

    A single piston master will not give a good pedal travel, not enough fluid displacement to take up the caliper piston retraction. The 1-1/16 tandem should've given a good firm pedal if everything is correct. How is the pedal setup? May have too much pedal ratio. Post a pic of the pedal setup assuming it's a stock style setup. Also as mentioned confirm all bleeders are pointing up, seen this a few times where calipers are mounted on wrong side. Check front wheel bearings for excess play which pushes piston back into he caliper, check rear capiler brackets for bend or twist as this can also cause pistons to be pushed back.
