Question about 2005 Suzuki GSX-R 750

1 Answer

Due to heavy rains I haven't rode my 07' GSXR 750 for about a week 1/2. There is no tension in the front brakes, no fluid has leaked out, I went out and purchased brake fluid and refilled the resivor and it did nothing. How do I get the tension back?

Hi, there are a few possibles. Maybe if you ride/break hard, your cables may have stretched/weaknd lessening the braking over time, this is why riders upgrade to braided hoses. It may be that you have a tiny hole/ perforation above the fluid level in the reservoir - or the reservoir cap/seal gaskets, have gone requiring replacement. If none of this, u really need to look at stripping the brakes down from top to bottom. You may find an essential washer/seal, plunger or spring has failed.

I have a 1997 gsxr 750 srad and it has the standard tokka front break calipers, problem is they stick ,My question is can I fit a different set of calipers and what make are good and will fit .


Hi, Nick those calipers worked fine for 20 years if they are sticking a little rebuild them with a new caliper kit, it;s a lot cheaper for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

You might have a leak in your tube mount between the carb and head. Let the bike idle and spray some starting fluid on the front of the carb. If the idle shoots up, you have a leak. Either cracked/weatherd or not tight enough

Check the fluid level in the front master cylinder. Chances are you need to add some brake fluid and then bleed air out of the system. There is a bleeder valve on the handlebar at the lever and one on top of the wheel caliper. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Gsxr 750 brake problems.


it would seem hard for me to believe that both your front calipers would go bad at the same time.. so i would think the problems is in the brake master cylinder, its not likely, but is possible that you have contamination in the system. you may want to get this problem looked at by a mechanic.

2004 Suzuki GSXR 750 front brakes won't engage


i believe its the disc brake.check for any leakages in the hose connecting the brake pads as well as the oil levels.if its low than the threshold level please fill it up with the recommended brake oil for bike.(usually dot3 or dot4 for disc brakes)
also ensure the brake pads have grooves over it and they are in proper condition.if they are worn out then the disc would be filled with black oily substance.if yes for the previous conditions change the brake pads too.
thanks for contacting fix-ya

Pedal almost goes to floor, see steam or smoke from front wheels


Definitely sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. It shouldn't be driven anymore until the problem is repaired. The red brake light comes on when the fluid is low. If your in a rusty climate one of the brake lines has probably rusted out. When it dries up try following the lines from the master to each wheel. However since you said you saw smoke when braking i'd bet the leak is near a wheel and fluid hit the rotor or caliper which caused the smoke. In either case, sounds like something has to be replaced / repaired. Good luck.

Excess travel on front brakes of a gsxr 750 ws


You need to make sure master cyl clean possibly needs new seals or master cyl,but try this remove pads keep pumping cyl so that pistons come out further place some wood or plastic between disc and pistons thinner than your pads that should stop your pistons coming out and will allow more fluid into the caliper,then press the pistons back to return fluid back up pipe to pressurise valve good luck it may not work first time just keep pumping .
