Hi all 

so my bike failed its MOT on the rear brake !! no surprise there 

I've got the AP rear sets so the master cylinder has moved into the vertical position 
So the question is do I need to relocate the calliper or can it stay in place ?

I've looked for guidance and the video of Griff and Spanish Al but thats with the master cylinder in the factory position (Horizontal)

Cheers for any help and advice

Yep follow Griefs video caliper blead screw needs to be highest. master being vertical should be ok better if anything.

I have vertical mc and unbolt the rear caliper and cable tie it to the subframe so the bleed nipple is at the top with a spanner between the pads, you usually need to drop the can off for clearance, bleed the brakes as normal.
