So I recently bought my bike a month ago, I’m barley at 960 miles and I noticed my rear brake leaking fluid onto the caliper. Has any one ran into this issue. If so what did you do? And what should I do?!?!? Please help.
Well it should be under warranty if you bought it a month ago. (assuming you bought it new you didn't state) I would take it back to the dealer show them the problem. Only 2 things come to mind. The bolt that runs through the line into the caliper should have a crush washer on both sides of it. Could be leaking there or the bolt wasn't torqued from the factory and is leaking. The other thing you could have a pin hole in the brake line and it is leaking fluid. Try to clean it with some brake clean, and pump the brakes and see if you can find a leak. Post some pictures would be helpful.
If you choose to ride it be careful as brake fluid on a rear tire could end bad.
