SOURCE: 2003 rear brake caliper lock up on a harley sportster

Check your pads to make sure they are in the right position and haven't started to wear too thin and move.
Check the operation of the pads is real smooth when you apply pressure on the lever (might need someone else to operate it while you look ).
Witth the rear wheel raised off the ground and the bike not running turn the wheel slowly and check to see if it warped. (I used to do this on my sportster by using a couple of car axle stands under the footpeg brackets and raising the bike up on an old hydraulic car jack - might not be the best way but it worked enough for me to get the rear wheel off to change tyres without spending a fortune-an extra pair of hands is really handy(!) here).
Look down the rear caliper and check that no **** from the road has got stuck in there anywhere.
check your wheel alignment - have you adjusted the belt lately or latered the set-up?
Hope something here helps!

SOURCE: How do I change the front and rear brakes on a

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

SOURCE: The front brake caliper hangs up, drags, I have

Disk pads can sometimes hang up if the pins the disk pads slide on are not greased with hi-temp grease. If the pins are not greased the pads will tend to stick on the pins and not retract properly.

SOURCE: Changed rear brake pads. Now, pedal never delivers

you need to bleed the brake, attach a hose into a small can of brake fluid, the other end to caliper bleed valve (5/16), its covered with a little rubber boot on the caliper. pump brake pedal, hold it down, open the valve ( turn left) flluid and air comes out, then close valve.repeat untill no more air comes out and brake pedal becomes stiff, about 10 times

SOURCE: rear brake pad change 07 streetglide

You don't have to but you should pull the caliper anyway, to clean it and check the anti-rattle spring.

I replaced the brake pads on the rear of my 1999 Olds Bravada. We didn't bleed the brakes because we didn't feel that we had compromised them. Now the brakes are dragging and it seem


Replace the calipers my friend. Corrosion on the caliper pistons is holding the brakes on causing the drag. That rubber boot over the piston doesn't seal from condensation and makes surface rust/corrosion and won't allow the pistons to release all pressure.

Hi Anonymous, you could have rear master cylinder issues, the piston is not returning all the way, or a piston in the caliper is not retracting fully for what ever for what ever reason. Good luck

I have a'90 goldwing,I cannot get brake fluid thru


Your rear brake pedal operates the rear caliper and the front disc. When you tried to bleed the left front caliper you let air into the rear brake system. Bleed the rear brake and front left caliper using the rear brake pedal that should restore the rear (and front) brakes.

Why would passenger front brake get hot?


it means the brake caliper is hanging up dragging the pads on the rotor causing heat. replace caliper and bleed brakes. also check the flexible hose that connects to that caliper. could be collapsed inside not allowing fluid to return. if in doubt replace it too at the same time with caliper and bleed brakes.

I just replaced the rear brake pads on my 03 Silverado 1500. at first it drove fine, but Ive noticed lately that the rear (disk) brakes are dragging and causing excessive heat. There is a noticable shimmy...


Your calipers are sticking and causing your brakes to drag.Did you clean and lube the caliper slides before you reinstalled them and did you have the rotors turned?I have had this happen to me after doing a rear brake job.One or both of the calipers would stick and I had to replace them.Which means you will have to bleed the rear brakes.(Rear only)Hope this helps and let me know if you have anymore questions.Good luck.

Replacing rear brakes on 96 deville


quite an involved repair if unfamiliar. Include proper setting of park brake arm to get proper pedal height , or the pedal might go to the floor.. Also includes bleeding of the brake system, with a power bleeder.

Brake pedal won't return.


There could be a couple reasons for this. First thing to check is your return spring, is it still there and attached properly? Next thing to check is your master cylinder pressure release. Loosen the bleed nipple on the rear caliper. Does the brake release now? If so, your master cylinder has some debris clogging the fluid return passageway. Remove and clean it. If the brake still does not release after opening the bleed nipple, at least one of your caliper pistons is binding. Remove the rear caliper and the brake pads. Now press the pedal and force the pistons out. Looses the bleed nipple and attempt to press the pistons back into place. They should move smoothly when you apply firm pressure. Clean the caliper thoroughly. If you have a rebuild kit for the caliper this is a good time to rebuild it. After cleaning, put it back together, bleed the brakes and test again. It is normal for disk brakes to drag SLIGHTLY on the rotor, but they should not stop a free spinning wheel in less than a coupld revolutions when spun by hand.
