If pistons can be manually pushed back, then you may have **** in the brake line going to that caliper. a blockage will cause that. the piston seals may be damaged. they are square so when the piston goes out, the seal rocks forward but wants to pull the piston back when pressure is released.don't pull the caliper apart unless you know what your doing. and if you do then i don't need to explain the process.

Kia K2700 front brakes binding, new master and load censor.

check the adjustment of the pedal for the master cylinder
the rod attached to the pedal must be free about 1" movement before the master cylinder is activated
if the pistons in the master cylinder are not free of the compensating ports tyen hot brake fluid will push on the calliper pistons and apply the brakes
the load sensor is only a proportioning valve to allow more pressure to the rear brakes under a loaded situation
you may have to take it to an accredited brake specialist shop to properly diagnose the problem

Should piston go all the way back where it is flush with piston outer housing?

Measure the thickness of the disc. It could be thin enough with the worn bads that the piston is coming out so far that it is binding in the bore.

I just bought a 2008 hyosung comet and when applying the rear brake it locked up and will not pads will not release

Its usually possible to release the calliper by loosening the bleed screw to relieve pressure then carefully push the piston(s) back with a screwdriver or similar... Careful not to scratch the piston though.

Man truck front brakes siezed on

Hi I have a 2001 Man le 160c 7.5tonne recovery truck which has a similar problem as the truck is rarely used & every time I go to move it the front brakes seem to stick on but most times they free them selves when rocking the truck backwards & forwards but will need inspected before I drive it but unsure with commercial vehicles if they will just need a good clean with a power drill & wire brush & callipers pistons some oil ?? unsure if the callipers pistons screw in or just push in ,I have drove it for 2 miles & I could feel the front brakes were still hanging on , please advise

Front brake pads are not resting on the rim

Getting hand-brakes adjusted correctly is often a challenge, but they are adjustable with the right size wrenches. On the other hand, a front hand-brake on a child's one-speed bike is not necessary and is only on the bike to give it sales-appeal. If this is a one-speed bike, then it has a coaster brake (operated by pushing the pedals backwards). Actually the coaster brake is much safer than a front hand brake anyway. If the child applies the coaster brake too heavily, they will just skid. If they apply the front brake too heavily, they will go over the handlebars. If the hand brake is not interfering with the front wheel and is just not very effective, I would just leave it as-is. If the brakes rub on the tire, you should adjust them so they don't rub the tire.

I have a polaris 500 atv after sitting for a couple of days the left front wheel acts like it is locked up. I can back up a few times and then it releases. I cant tell if it is the break or the hub

As it is a atv i expect the brake is binding try removing the brake calliper and checking the brake piston for rust or dirt,gently clean with brass brush dont damage the rubber seal though . Allso try removing the calliper before leaving atv if it sticks with calliper removed may be dodgy bearing in hub.

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.

Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike
