Question about 1976 Yamaha XS 500
My Rear Brake is stick on,almost causing the wheel to lock up.
Any ideas, my bike is a 1980 Yamaha XS500
I guess the rear brakes system of your bike must be mechanical.
Remove the rear adjusting nut on the brake rod and thn try it , the wheel should rotate freely.
If no, thn theres a problem in the drum and the linnings.. you will hve to remove the back wheel and examine.
If after removing the adjusting nut at the rear rod it moves freely thn theres a problem frm the rod to the brake pedal.
Or it may have been tht the adjustment was too tight without a free play .
Hope this helps!
