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

Can my suzuki tl1000r start slipping because i change the oil with car oil instead of the motorcycle oil?


Yes it will wreck your clutch plates and you will need to replace them and flush the engine clean of the car oil as the anti friction additives in the oil attack the plates and they break down into little bits

Rear brakes sticking


push back the pads if possible and then press the brake and see if they return ! if not then remove the pads and clean where they fit and press the brake a little so the pistons come out then gently clean off then push back in and refit pads and try !

2003 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC REAR DISC RATTLE,HOW DO I REPLACE IT?


Hello Dale, this is an easy job on your bike. Use a flat head screw driver and remove the brake pad cover...it will pop off.
Remove the hairpin type clips off of the ends of the brake pad pins.... Use pliers & pull the brake pad pins out from the front of the rear brake caliper....Clean the rear brake caliper's piston with brake cleaner. Use a rag and wipe it clean...Reinsert the old brake pads into the caliper. Place a pry bar between the brake pads, then push the inner piston into the caliper body, this will allow room to install new pads.... Remove the old brake pads...Coat the brake pad pins and the new brake pads metal back plates with high-temperature grease.

Slip the new brake pads into the rear brake caliper, then push the brake pad pins halfway into the caliper. Slip the spring clips into place between the brake pads and the brake pad pins. Push the brake pad pins completely through the rear brake caliper. Push the hairpin clips back into the brake pad pin tips. Snap the brake pad cover onto the top of the rear brake caliper....

Pump the rear brake pedal until the pedal feels firm, indicating that the brake pads have closed around the brake rotor...No bleeding will be needed because the system was never opened - That's all there is to it...i hope this information is helpful & good luck with your bike.

My 2002 suzuki gsxr 1000 has lost its rear brakes. the pads are good and theres plenty of fluide. ive tryed bleeding them and the pads still will not engage


When you bleed brakes make sure bleed nipple is pointing downwards and the whole caliper is upside down so the fluid runs through the whole system, each time i change pads on mine i have to do this for some reason. Hope that helps

Hi i have just baught a gz 125 y marauder only to find that the cable for the rear brake is sticking, which is keeping the rear brake pads pushed against the drum. Will i have to buy a new cable and if so,...


hi, you could try lubricating the cable first with some lite oil, or wd40 or similar, are you sure it is the cable and not the brake shoe cam, try undoing the cable, push manualy on the arm from the rear brake drum, doing this will eliminate the cable being the possible cause, when you push on the lever on the rear brake drum with the cable undone from it, the arm should return freely when pushed or pulled, if it is seized at this point you will have to remove the rear wheel,remove the lever from the cam drift out cam from hub, and clean and lubricate before reasembly, when replacing the cable it is important you alow at least 10mm free play in travel, and check for free movment of wheel before use, also ensure you have enough travel to alow operation of rear brake light.

Replacing brakes, 03 mini


there is nothing special about replacing the wear sensors. The tools that you will need are 7mm allen, 16mm 6 point socket, ratchet, T-50, large channel locks, and a keyed pad pusher for the rear calipers.

Ford Expedition rear brake brake replacement


The rear pads are usualy harder than the front and the harder the pads the more wear there is on the rotors Unless the rotors were worn to the point of replacement they could have had them skimmed.Being soft doesnt make much sense.Have an 03 ba falcon and only replaced our rotors after doing 125000ks The expidition is a similar beast that used the same brake system.Get the rotors skimmed and go to a slightly softer pad to extend rotor life
