Question about 2008 Suzuki GSX-R 600
I need some help. I'm trying to order parts to fix up my bike which was dropped and I don't want to get ripped off by the local dealer.
So here's the problem...after my husband dropped it, the front brake is stuck. The clip on is broken and so is the right handle switch. Those are a given, but everything is looks fine to me. My husband is deployed now so I unfortunately have to get all the parts before he comes on a pass to fix it and I don't have a clue what the problem may be with the front brake and if I need to order anything else.
I know it's going to be hard to tell just by my description and and some pics but I was hoping someone could give me an idea so if I do go to the dealer I wont be looked at like a girl that knows nothing, or I can just go ahead and order the parts. I have pictures if that helps. Let me know if you need for details.
Now that you have bled the brakes and everything seems okay, try pumping the brake lever many times while the bike is stationary. Do the brakes build up pressure and not release? If everything still seems okay after you do that I would take the bike for a ride around the neighborhood. Stop every few minutes to make sure the disc isn't heating up indicating the brakes may not be releasing properly.
If the master cylinder is working properly, when you pull the brake lever fluid is pumped into the brake line. This forces the brake pads against the brake disc, stopping the bike. When you let off the lever the fluid is allowed back into the master cylinder. If the cylinder does not release the fluid it could put a quick end to your riding. I would not be comfortable letting someone ride this bike very far until I took the master cylinder apart and satisfied myself that it was problem free.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Now you can talk intelligently as to the proper name of a part. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site but I would go to your local dealer in this case.
Email the photos to me at email@example.com I will then post a comment on what I see. Note > I suggest that you click on any responders name (in blue) so you can see their history and ratings.
