I am having an issue with my brakes. I got new handlebars and needed to get a longer hose. I opted for the Goodridge steel braided one. Well, after much bleeding, I had no force on the lever. I figure the line was too small. So, I took off one side of the brakes and left only one brake connected. I used the bottom line to run from the top to the distributer. I bled the system and still have no pressure. How do I get this fixed.

The problem is that I get not tension no matter how much I pump the brake. I've vacuumed out the lines and still get a weak lever. I'm lost

Sounds like the brake valve in the master cylinder isn't releasing its air. You may have to lightly tap on the master cylinder to get the air out of it. Your symptoms are similar to what I had when I changed out my brake fluid. I had to hold the lever in and lightly tap the master cylinder with the lid off in order to get the air out.
