Your calipers are getting hung up because they are over heating. you could have to much fluid in the system, and it is not letting the pistons back into the caliper. You can rebuild the calipers or try to drain and bleed your brakes over again it might work it might not

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Piston stuck in the caliper due to contamination.
2. Piston stuck in the master cylinder due to contamination.
3. Incorrect DOT # of brake fluid.
4. Warped or bent brake rotor.
5. Incompatible brake pads.
6. Incorrect caliper spacing.
7. Not enough free play at pedal or lever.
8. Collapsed brake line inner lining.
9. Excessive heat buildup due to riding the pedal or lever.
10.Brake shoes adjusted too tight.

Having problem with my front brake for Yamaha R1 , the brake pads are locking while am riding n it happens after about a mile. The problem started after replacing a brake lever . Any solution ?


OK.... The problem is your brake lever. There is nothing wrong with your braking system, Master Cylinder is fine, pads are fine, fluid is fine, everything is fine. Replace that brake lever with the original one your took off, if not, it will cost you your life. I know I was almost killed due to the wrong brake lever. Everything on the new lever looks right. Right? Same, pin hole size, the plunger seems to fit perfect, the brake light switch flange, it fits, appears to work fine, doesn't bind.. Then wham!! You lock up. DO NOT RIDE WITH THAT NEW LEVER ON.. No matter how expensive it was. Live with the Stock one until you can be sure that the next one you buy is absolutely and irrevically safe to ride with. This MOD is not worth your life. FYI, my lock up occurred in the dark, US 101, lane three, 80mph. 80mph to 0mph in 1 second flat. Bike did not flip just came to a massive stop. I will spare you the "Most frightening 2 minutes of my life". I have 26 years of riding experience, and one stupid mod nearly took my life, and my bike, and more importantly, could have taken someone else's life, or scarred them for life had they hit me... Just saying'.
Happy safe riding. Phil.

Xvs front brake problem,,


notorious for that
your brake maybe worn out pistons are sticking out.when sitting,they cool an ease off.
to fix: while doing this.it maybe a good idea to replace the brake.
remove the piston .
i used wet or dry sand paper 1000 grit dipped in brake
fluid to sand them lightly.especially where you see a ring
around them. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFULL sometime air pressure is used to dismantal
