I seem to be getting air in my break line and have to burp before I go ride or after. Lever gets really soft. Not sure is their seals to replace on the breaks or would I need to replace break line.

I think that you need to give more info.

Is your brake broken?

How did you break your brake?

I have had the same thing happen to me. I would do a burp and even a full system bleed... I discovered the fluid to be quite dirty when I tried to service them. Upon closer inspection, I discovered I had a pierced brake hose. Once I replaced the hose, things worked out.

What brand/model of brake are you running? I am a 15 year tech, perhaps I can provide some enlightenment.
