I have a problem with my Hayes 9.
I re-bled it and it was ok. for a moment.
Unfortunately, during the night some of the dot4 fluid escaped through
this small hole in the reservoir cap:

now, with only part of the fluid left, it has very low stopping power.
i can feel piston going to the end, and still no power :(

what should i do?
re-bleed it again?
is changing an reservoir cap nessesery?
or throw hayes away and buy Deore535 brake?

Get a new reservoir seal and rebleed and if that doesn't fix it look at
some Magura or Hope brakes
