Not sure what to do to fix this so I thought I'd come to the experts. I have a XR650L / 2005 and just had new tires put on. My front brake has no pressure now. I'm wondering if this is like a car and does the line need bleeding? If so how do I do that and if not, what is making my front brake act up. Sorry in advance if this is posted in the wrong spot. I looked through and couldn't find a specific tire change / brake problem list.
Thanks all in advance,

Keep squeezing the brakes. If the pressure does not come back they may need to be bled out. When you space the pads to re-install the rotor/wheel combo it takes a few pulls on the lever to get the pads back out where they belong.
