Question about 1996 kawasaki GPZ 500 S - GPX 500 R
81 honda cb650 custom. when my brakes get hot,they stick/lock and can't be pushed.
what causes this and how can i fix it?
Sound like your brake caliper for the front (I'm assuming that it's the front) is hanging up. They get corrosion and the caliper piston sticks. Have it rebuilt, or do it yourself. I take it off, and use compressed air at the hose connection to "blow" out the piston, with a piece of wood where the pads go to protect the piston from the blasting out. Be careful when doing this because it comes out like a shot!!! If it wont move, I have made a grease fitting fastener that threads in, and pumped grease into it to remove the piston, messy but safer. Clean up the piston and caliper real good and re-asemble. Use brake fluid to lube up the seal.
