Hi,

does your new yorker have ABS?

look on your calipers and tell me the position of the bleeder screws - towards bottom or towards top of the caliper- in other words below are above where the brake hose bolts to caliper


did the master cylinder go dry while replacing the caliper and hoses?

what order did you try bleeding the brakes in?

Hi,

Ok, if I am reading that correctly, you are saying that the bleeders are below the hoses. This is the problem. you have the calipers on the wrong sides. swap left to right side and the right to the left side. With bleeder screw below the brake hose to caliper connection, there will always be an air pocket at top of caliper that wont bleed out. Swap the sides and then rebleed.

below diagram shows the bleeder screw at top of caliper, above hose, for correct location:
