My brake fluid is leaking out slowly and then completely after 2 hours of riding. I filled it when we stoped, but then it was gone in about an hour. Nobreaks at all. Before I try to find the leak, are there any common places I should look to see if the line if cracked? Or, could it be a bubble in the air line like on the "Brake Lever" post from earlier today?

thanks for the feedback. I EASILY found the leak this morning from the puddle of brake fluid under the left front tire. I looked at the caliper and there's a piece of metal hanging down. Guess a stick or rock got me! Anyway, off to the dealer I go for repairs.

Do you think the warrenty will cover replacing the brake caliper that broke?
