Question about Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
If you drive a short distance and the wheel is locking up. You can release the pressure by opening up the bleeder valve on the wheel. This should allow you to drive back to your starting point before it locks up again. The problem in in the master cylinder on the handlebar. If you take off the cover. put a wad of lint free cloth in the reservoir to soak up fluid. Do not spill on paint or plastic parts, cover bike with plastic. You will see a large hole the fluid uses to feed the piston. Now look more closely and you will see a tiny pin hole that returns the fluid back to the reservoir. This is plugged . Clean this pin hole with a piece of wire ( one wire cut from a wire brush will do ). Fill and bleed the system and your problem should be solved. If the bike is old you should replace all the rubber seals in the master cylinder and wheel cylinder (You probably don't need them.)
