It sounds like you have an air lock in the system .
I would make sure to use the right brake fluid , drain the system and bleed the brakes again and making sure that no air is locked in the system

Why would the back brakes lock up on a 92 fxr lowrider


Sounds like caliper seized. Remove, clean, rebuild, and bleed the old brake fluid making sure to use what Harley recommends. If you don't want to rebuild, you can buy a new one fairly cheap, then bleed the air and old brake fluid out.

1999 Yamaha Kodiak Front Disc Brake - Rebuilt master cylinder with new parts. Replaced orings on piston in front caliper and bleed brakes using new fluid. The piston will not retract. What is proble


The brake hose is clogged. When under pressure from applying breaks, the piston is forced tight to the rotor. When released the fluid will not return through the hose because there is no real pressure. Replace the hose.

2003 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC REAR DISC RATTLE,HOW DO I REPLACE IT?


Hello Dale, this is an easy job on your bike. Use a flat head screw driver and remove the brake pad cover...it will pop off.
Remove the hairpin type clips off of the ends of the brake pad pins.... Use pliers & pull the brake pad pins out from the front of the rear brake caliper....Clean the rear brake caliper's piston with brake cleaner. Use a rag and wipe it clean...Reinsert the old brake pads into the caliper. Place a pry bar between the brake pads, then push the inner piston into the caliper body, this will allow room to install new pads.... Remove the old brake pads...Coat the brake pad pins and the new brake pads metal back plates with high-temperature grease.

Slip the new brake pads into the rear brake caliper, then push the brake pad pins halfway into the caliper. Slip the spring clips into place between the brake pads and the brake pad pins. Push the brake pad pins completely through the rear brake caliper. Push the hairpin clips back into the brake pad pin tips. Snap the brake pad cover onto the top of the rear brake caliper....

Pump the rear brake pedal until the pedal feels firm, indicating that the brake pads have closed around the brake rotor...No bleeding will be needed because the system was never opened - That's all there is to it...i hope this information is helpful & good luck with your bike.

Front disc brake is very spongy, sometimes it grabs properly but mostly the brake is useless (pads are fairly new)


Try bleeding it first. If there isn't any air in the system, you have a brake hose collapsing internally. Replace the hose, flush the system, bleed the air out and you'll be fine. Good luck!

I have a Schwinn Ditch mountain bike with front disc brakes and a quick release front tire. I pooped the tire off using the quick release on the hub and the tire simply slipped off and out of the disc...


You have to bleed the break fluid on your break and press the pads on both sides then insert the disc. When you bleed the break fluid do not press the lever.

Want to change front brake pads , like to see a pictire of the font brakes ?


Look at you bike front wheels, make sure your bike is sitting on a level ground and the steering is straight.. You will see 2 brake calipers gripping your brake disk that is your brke pads. In the middle of the caliper body there should be a Hex key bolt, use appropriate key to remove the bolt of the caliper, remove the pad, on installing new pads make sure you have open your master cylinder reservoir and removed at least half of the oil so when you compresses the caliper piston the oil doesnot overflow out.
Put in your new pads, lock them with the Hex bolt and now see how much oil is in the reservoir, if needed, top up to make it full enough. Press your hand brake while hand spinning the front wheel to test the pad gripping position, if it grabs immediately. Your job is complete.
Good enough?

Brake pad replacement


you should not need any special screws, a spanner or socket to remove the brake calliper. Then a large flat screwdriver, to prize open the gap between the old pads, as they are worn down and you will need to do this so the new ones fit in. The only one precaution to remember, is never suqeeze the front brake lever while you have the caliper off the bike, this could cause the caliper piston to fall right out. After you replace the pads, and put the calliper back on the bike, you will need to pump the brake lever a few times before the brakes feel right. you should not have to bleed the brakes after that job

How do i change thefront pads on my trident 900.96


Remove the caliper (brake) take note of the position of the anti-rattle spring, like a thin meatal plate on the edge of the brake pads. May be coverd with a plastic shield. Then remove the brake pin(s) they cross horizontally through the top edge of the brake pads, usually chrome or gold colour. The pads will then drop out,take note of any backing plates that may come out with the pads, as it is important that they go back right way up etc. While the pads are out inspect the brake pistons for rust,pump the brake lever once no more as the piston will come out,big nightmare !!.so be carefull. clean with soft brush ,then push back with soft metal or hard wood dont damage the rubber.The piston will resist so be patient . Once the pistons are home,smear the back of the new brake pads with copper grease match head size per pad,and reverse proses to re-fit. lock-tight caliper retaining bolts and torque to spec. PUMP BRAKE LEVER BEFORE RIDING OFF as pads will not touch disc first go.give final inspection try brakes while standing next to bike ,then gently bed them in for next 100 miles or they will glase over.
