Question about 2006 Triumph Triumph Bonneville
I had to lock up the breaks in traffic and noticed the rear break draging a little. It was night time and when I came back to the bike in the morning there was a chalky white chemical on the caliper and rear rim. I am wondering about a blown seal or something like that???
Did you wash the bike with TFR soap or a strong detergant recently these can cause a chalky crossion on alloy parts and calipers and cause brake binding, usually blown seal you would feel weekness in the pedal, remove the caliper and check around the pistons for dampness or any pinching seals where the piston meets the caliper. Check for corossion around the pistions clean and rubber grease if needed.
