    Sounds like you may have a faulty lever. Is the lever aftermarket? Double check the fluid level and try bleeding the system. There is a possibility that the return orifice is clogged causing extra pressure at the caliper.

Your calipers are getting hung up because they are over heating. you could have to much fluid in the system, and it is not letting the pistons back into the caliper. You can rebuild the calipers or try to drain and bleed your brakes over again it might work it might not

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Piston stuck in the caliper due to contamination.
2. Piston stuck in the master cylinder due to contamination.
3. Incorrect DOT # of brake fluid.
4. Warped or bent brake rotor.
5. Incompatible brake pads.
6. Incorrect caliper spacing.
7. Not enough free play at pedal or lever.
8. Collapsed brake line inner lining.
9. Excessive heat buildup due to riding the pedal or lever.
10.Brake shoes adjusted too tight.

Everything except the brake lights work on my 2001 R1 Yamaha


Hi, Candace good for you any type of wiring harness installation is no small quickie and fixing the brake light is easy before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.
