Xvs front brake problem,,

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.

SOURCE: Clutch bite is too far away from handlebar

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.

SOURCE: f-150 brakes are locking up when stopping at low

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.

Basically I'm losing a lot of corner speed, when turning into corners. I shut the throttle off too early and it feels like I'm carrying the bike round the corner. If adjust the throttle mid bend,...


You need to accelerate very gently while you go round the corner. This sounds wrong but even if you hold the throttle in the same position, physics dictates that as you go round the corner you do actually accelerate as you go round a corner at a constant speed (velocity/direction/speed - look it up if your interested!).
So on the approach to any corner, you need to: -
1 Position yourself and the bike for the approaching bend, toward the right hand side of your lane for left hand bends and vice versa.
2 Adjust your speed to one you can quite happily ride around your bend (Slow down by easing off the throttle or appling the brakes)
3 Once at the right speed, (off the brakes) select the right gear for the speed your doing.
4 GENTLY apply some throttle to stop the bike slowing down anymore.
5 Tip the bike into the corner by gently pushing on the left bar for left handers or vice versa keeping the throttle still so that you hold your speed through the corner.
6 As the bend opens up (becomes a straight) gently apply more throttle as you release the pressure on the bar and stop turning.
If you want to keep improving your riding skills, sign up to a advanced riding course. They are for people who enjoy riding and want to be safer and consequently faster.
Good luck with your riding and enjoy!

No brakes at rear wheel of my 2005 standard goldwing. Had a new rear tire(screw/nail) put on and the service man told me.I normally slow down slow enough to use front brakes.I had installed full foot...


Try putting the bike on the center stand and get the front wheel off the ground with a floor jack. Spin the front wheel by hand and press on the rear brake pedal. The front wheel should stop. Likewise with the bike on the center stand and the rear wheel off the ground you should be able to lock the rear wheel with the foot pedal. On many Goldwings the rear pedal also operates one front disc. This is for people that refuse to use there front brakes to stop or slow there bike (80% to 90% of your stopping power is the front brake). Try bleeding the entire system front and back, you may just have air in the system. If the rear brake still does not work you may have a bad delay valve in the system. If you need to take the bike in to a shop, try to find a mechanic that is familiar with the system so they do not replace parts unnecessarily. That way you minimize your shop time and maximize your riding time.

Bike surges at cruseing speed,like it is losing gas,but at full throttle it pulls fine runs good.


It sounds as though the slow speed jets are partially stopped up. When you give it more throttle the high speed jets take over. Try using a good carb cleaner in it for a few tanks. If that doesn't work than you may have to go through the carbs.

Ride safely, Ed

Air cleaner clean? Is it in fact warm (the engine) .

Id be inclined to let it warm a little more. Your hot bike has advanced time and as a result is difficult when cold.
