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.

Front breaks lock up,while driving,park for a few minutes,breaks are fine


Could be that the callipers are jamming or the wheel is running tight. Check for wheel spin with the front wheels off the ground, they should spin with minimum effort. Could also be something wrong with the master cylinder. It may not be releasing properly and slowly building pressure to lock the brakes. After sitting for a while, it returns to normal position and releases the brakes. Mt Ford had a dud wheel bearing which would intermittently start to seize. When this happened, the anti lock braking system thought that the wheel was about to lock and would throw the brakes on and off without warning... Check your wheel bearings too.

Brake light came on while driving


If the light is still on, some scanners can tell you what the problem is. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys do free scans. They need to have the better scanner with more capabilities to perform this function.

If a connection has failed the scanner will report it. For now, check your Brakefluid level and be aware of the fill line. A large drop in beakefluid level means a problem.

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 ?

The brakes on my 1997 Volkswagen Golf will periodically give out, the pedal going all the way to the floor, and then work normally at the next stop.


Hi Sdill, That must have been scarry! I suggest looking at the following:- Make sure there has been no separation of the brake linings from the mountings. Make sure that the rear brake assembly locators and retaining mounts have not come adrift. Check the front calipers and brake pads. Check the pedal movement and determine the normal movement with the engine running (car stationary) and the engine off and let me know the travel distance. Check for any signs of leakage of brake fluid on the inside of any of the wheels. Check for signs of leakage from the brake master cylinder. Check the flexible brake hoses for swelling or breakage. Check for broken or loose fitting of the hose to the brake booster and the one way valve operation of booster valve. When the failure occurs is there any braking effect at all? or does the pedal go to the floor with nothing happening? I'll be waiting for your reply. Regards John

Abs light on acura 2.3 cl 98. it goes on and off. I added some acura brakefluid, now light is off.


When you drive the brake pads wear down as a normal part of driving. When they get about half worn the amount of fluid in the master cylinder will be low because it takes more to fill the wheel cyliinders. Low brake fluid causes the light to come on. This is all normal.

I was driving my Sante FE yesterday and stopped at a red light. When I released the break all four brakes where still grabbing. As I was close to home, I kept it in 1st gear and drove back home. At that...


you are right when you mastercylinder related,as you have a very small port (compesating)inside the cylinder and should a small partical enter and block this port the brakefluid cannot push back when releasing the brakes causing the brakes to bind.the cylinder should be removed and cleaned.

Unable to bleed front brakes


loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck
