Question about Yamaha XVS 1100 Dragstar Motorcycles
I was riding my xvs 1100 at low speed and i noticed the bike was slowing down, i stopped and tried to push bike but front brakes were locked on, i waited till i could move it maybe 15 mins and then drove it 1km back home to check, , i adjusted the screw on brake lever and it felt better , but now when i drive it and brake, it feels like the brakes are biting uneven and lock the wheel very easy rather than a nice slow stop, hepl??
Notorious for that
your brake maybe worn out pistons are sticking out.when sitting,they cool an ease off.
to fix: while doing this.it maybe a good idea to replace the brake.
remove the piston .
i used wet or dry sand paper 1000 grit dipped in brake
fluid to sand them lightly.especially where you see a ring
around them. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFULL sometime air pressure is used to dismantal

SOURCE: rear brakes lock up
ABS hydraulics on that unit are a known problem.
The dealer has a set of gauges to install and verify.
Shop around for prices on one, including salvage, then take it to the dealer to verify the concern before you shell out a couple hundred bucks.
Its not a tough replacement if you are handy with a wrench.
If not, leave that one to the pros.

There should be about 1/8" end play on the clutch handle. Adjust the cable at the handlebars where the cable goes into the clutch lever housing. Screw the adjuster inward until the end play is present. Some bikes have an adjuster at the gearbox where the cable hooks up.

I was going to suggest bleeding the brakes, but since that is done, try bleeding the master or slave cylinders and check the system for air leaks. Make sure the pads retract sufficiently.
