Question about 2003 BMW F 650 CS Scarver

1 Answer

Front brakes jammed

I was driving with normal city speed when I realised that the front brakes were jammed. I´d tried to drain out some brakefluid ( I thought that it was over filled) but it only helped for a while. My bike is -03 Scarver with ABS. The handlebar seem to function properly and when opening the brake fluid chamber you see actually the fluid draining in and out from that needle hole in the bottom of the chamber while pressing and loosing the handlebar. So there should not be any extra particels blocking the needle hole. The rear brakes seem to work properly. Where should I start to screen the problem and how?? Appreciate any help :))

If you were unwise enough to think that draining brake fluid from your front brake was anywhere near to a sensible solution to a braking problem, please take your bike to the nearest repair centre and get it fixed properly before you kill yourself or someone else, or both.
That has to be the most bone-headed solution to a braking problem I have ever heard.

Iis it normal that after only 20,000 miles my 2006 fusion needs a complete brake job?.


Depends on your driving and what you mean by complete.
In city driving with lots of traffic lights, you could wear out the front pads in 20k. Probably not the rear, and not the hydraulic system.

97 Isuzu Rodeo original front brakes at 234,000 miles


Certainly possible, but very unusual.
Normal life is around 60,000 miles but of course driving highway and no city traffic would extend the life.
How many clutches so far ?

When braking from high speed front end shimmy's and steering wheel vibrates


Hi,
from your description I would list these possibles.
One or both front brake disc's / rotors are warped.
One or both front brake disc's are badly scored

If the fault, as you described it only happens when braking from a "high" speed, I would check the above.

Front end shimmy under "normal" driving can be caused by numerous faults in addition to those I stated above. However, I am using your definition as a scenario.

Good luck.
