I had a minor collision, and turned my brake and shifter assembly. I didn't notice any leaks from my reservoir or calipers but am having to pull the lever almost all the way in to get any brake. Anyone have a link to adding fluid?

Check Youtube for "bleeding ebike brakes" there are several videos.

Here's a nice video which gives a demo. They even show how bleeding the brakes removes the air using a model of a brake system.


A brake bleed kit will help you out too. You just need to read what brand of brake system you have so you get the right attachments in the kit. This bleed kit will do most brakes.
