Question about 2003 Suzuki TL 1000 R
The rear pads are not at the replacement point ,but when i push the brake down it will not stop, brake fluid level is good and clean.
Just to be sure you recognize there are TWO bleed nipples on the rear caliper - one on either side of the assembly. The one behind the rotor is not immediately obvious when looking straight onto the caliper from right side.

Sounds like the piston in the caliper has siezed.you can check this by removing the caliper and then trying the brake. you should be able to see the piston moving in and out. if it isnt then you have found the problem. if they are moving it could be that the pads need to be cleaned up on the sliders and use copper slip to re fit. hope this helps
