    As the brakes get spongy, stop and check to see if the calipers are getting hot, If so then there's too much drag from a binding caliper. Strip and clean the calipers.

Your rotor(s) are bent so when you bleed the brakes everything is good but when your riding the bent rotor is pushing the the caliper pistons back and when you go to brake you have to pump them up take rotors off and inspect them

Hi there, I have a 2001 EC200 GG and I'm finding the front brake weak and spongey. Is it generally the stock brake line or the pads that are the main problem, or something else? Cheers,


Hi, spongy brakes is usually from air in the system, only in really old bikes and poor quality brake lines will cause spongy breaks where the brake lines expand instead of full pressure being applied to the brake pads, very rarely will the brake pads cause spongy brakes (unless over heated), once you get rid of the sponginess you will get strong braking. Bleed your front brake system taking care not to let the master cylinder run out of fluid, this is the easiest and cheapest start, once all the air is out then you can work your way through, another good way of testing your braking system, but you need to be very careful doing this and make sure your brake lines are not hard or brittle, you can squeeze the brake line at certain spots (using a pair of brake line pliers), eg. squeeze after the master cylinder. if brakes spongy than your master cylinder needs attention, if brakes hard than your problem is further down the line, calipers etc. Hope this helps.

My brake light is stuck on 2005 yamaha r6. I recently laid it down on the right side. mostly just rash on the bike and everything seems to work ok except for the brake light being stuck in the on...


Hi, Tremike99 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.

Front brake


Hi ,
It sounds like the brake lever maybe the wrong one and it applies pressure on the brakes while riding and heat up the pads . Once the pads cool down you can roll again .
Make sure your lever is the right one

Front brake lever is very hard/solid when i


I am thinking that you need to change the fluid and replace the brake pads. Over time brake fluid attracts water and it states in the manual that brake fluid should be changed. I change fluid in mine every other year.

Sometimes when i apply the front brake i feel a pulsing or quick thumping... tightened the steering bearing but no change..ant the front brakes are good but they squeal


Well the front brakes aren't good if they squeal as squeling alone is going to raise my eye to somethings wrong. Good breakes don't squeal. Thumping like you say may be the rotors may be out of round as the brake that squeals is'nt returning all the way when it's not being applied making it get too hot ruiening the brake pads boiling the brake pads and warping the rotors. Motorcycle rotors don't urn well ( machine at parts store ) and the service is'nt recomened as the saftty of the rider is put in jeporty.. You don't need to crash because you bikes not up to good. *** rotrs can be bought on the internet and catalog suppliers as the aftermarket sells these popular bike parts. The dealer parts are only a little better and they will cost plenty. If in dought have a pro do it. The life you may save may be your own,
