Picked up a 6 month old Kart Republic, all in great condition. However noticed over time brake fluid is pooling around each of the two bleed screws! Obviously, we’ve tightened them adequately (but not too tight as calliper metal is soft). Apparently there are no seals or O-rings with these new EL.ZET brakes. Also, there’s barely a gap between the brake pads and disc; whilst it’s a floater there’s constant dragging - maybe something to do with the bleed screw issue or a KR quirk? It look’s like the pistons are barely retracting. BTW the whole system has been carefully bled with DOT 4 and disc carrier aligned.
Can any of you KR experts shed light on this?
