No, there is no adjustment aside from being certain calipers are not binding. Be sure the M/C is fully releasing.

You need to replace the rubber hose going to the brake caliper from the metal line. The inside of the hose is breaking down inside keeping the caliper from releasing. Hope this helps please leave comment.

One brake rotor gets very hot after 30 miles


on the wheel that is hot, jack it up and see it the wheel spins free or drags? if it drags, then loosen bleeder on the caliper, it if now spins free, you want to replace that caliper hose, if it is still dragging, then the caliper piston is stuck and you will need to replace it.

Replace both front brake hoses.....they collapse on the inside and will not allow fluid to retract...caliper was probobly fine.....this happens a lot....good luck...Lee

Front brackes dragging


Change the hoses from your calipers to the frame. It's a rubber looking line. Inside of those lines there is a valve and if that valve is not functioning properly, when you release the brake pedal it doesn't allow fluid to come back to the resevoir and therefore gives you the feeling you are driving with the brake on. Change them both sides and see if that helps
