Check to make sure your rotor isn't bent, and your pads are installed correctly. Also, you may want to check your rear master cylinder. If the cartridge in it is bad, that is often times the effect it will produce. If your master cylinder is good, you may have a bad caliper piston. I have never really heard of them going bad, but if a piston bore was out of round or scratched, it could cause the pad to drag on the rotor.
Well, the pistons should be somewhat tough to move with just your hand, however, it should not be that hard to push a small rear brake piston back in. You may want to pull the caliper back off, inspect the piston AND the seal that goes around the bore. Perhaps the seal is old or twisted, or you may have even gotten a small piece of debris in the bore. If you remove the caliper, the pistons are easy to remove by shooting some compressed air into the inlet where your banjo bolt runs through. Make sure you use a piece of cardboard or something to catch those pistons, as a good amount of air pressure will actually shoot them out of the bores.
Ok so i'm no stranger to working on engines but i'm having an issue with my zx6r. I pulled the cams for a shim change and a new cam chain tensoner. I reassembled everything and tried to do the standard hand rotation prior to buttoning it all up. Well the darn thing won't spin; I can get it to...
I recent bled my brakes and didnt reinstall the small metal clip seen in this video at 2:38 at the bottom of the reservoir. I was wondering if this will cause any problems? Didnt look like it did very much.
Thanks for the help
Alright, so I got a '98 XJ600S. Sometimes when I ride, the clutch will stop engaging. The clutch lever will pull the cable, and pull the clutch arm, but the clutch won't allow me to drop RPMs so I can shift. Then when the clutch finally starts working, the lever is very loose. When I pull the...
