Question about 2000 KTM 640 LC4
My 2000 LC4 sat for a year while I vacationed in the desert. After rebuilding the carberator I got it running. During my first ride (about 5 miles) the rear brakes locked up. I could not move the wheel until I removed the line to the rear hub. I assume that there must be a problem with the master cylinder. Do you have any advise on what could be wrong and possible fixes? Can this type of repair be done without special tools?
My 2000 lc4 did the same thing. it was sitting for a long time (i bought it with 300 miles, and 8 years old) i tried adjustments, and everything else, which didn't help, but ended up rebuilding the master cylinder, and that fixed it. could see anything wrong with it, but replaced all the internal parts anyway. i've now put 2000 miles on with no more problems.

When was the last time you checked/changed your rear brake pads? This isn't really easy to miss, with the reduced braking power and different sound when braking, but if you have worn the pads so much, that the pad's metal surface (or even the cylinder itself) has gone out and stuck into disc, you could have a problem... For starters, remove your brake caliper, and have a look inside, this can be done easily.
