Took my motorbike to have the tyres changed. 2 1/2 hours

Customer Question

Took my motorbike to have the tyres changed. 2 1/2 hours later the garage tells me that I have no air in my front brake. The brakes were fine before I went and the brake fluid level was also fine. Have the garage been careless when changing my tyres?

hello

if the front brakes are now inoperative then yes I'd say they may have caused some damage

when you say there's no air in the front brake do you mean fluid? or is the front tyre now flat?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The tyre isn't flat. The garage held their hands up and told me that one of the mechanics had let air into the brake fluid causing the front brake to fail. They've done a full brake service for free. Thanks for the response
