Try bleeding it. There may be an air bubble in the line that expands when the brake gets hot or the fluid has gone gummy and the piston is not releasing fully. In any case a good bleeding and a complete change of fluid is the first option. If that does not work next strip the caliper and polish the piston and cylinder. The last option is to replace the master cylinder.

I expect it has air in the slave cylinder. Bleeding the brakes will get rid of the air. Check if the brakes are spongy. If they aren't, make sure the spring plates behind the pads are fitted. They ensure the pads are pushed back into the calliper a little bit, reducing heat and wear.

Front brakes


Try bleeding the master cylinder first. Pump the brakes up,and hold lever in while loosening banjo bolt at the master cylinder. Loosen it slowly untill the fluid "rushes " out.The lever will go down,and just holdit in while tightening the banjo bolt. Be sure to use a towel or something over the tank/fairings,so it doesnt mess up the paint. Repeat this about 2 times,THEN bleed the caliper farthest from the master cylinder,then the other. This should fix your problem. If it still doesnt hold pressure,then most likely you have a leak in the master cylinder,or one or both of the calipers. Good Luck!

How do you remove the tire off the front rim on a 2000 kawasak zx-9r ninja


You need to let all of the air out of tire, break the bead off of the rim and pry the tire off of the rim. I recommend taking it to a shop and having it changed on a tire machine to avoid chipping or scratching the rim.

What is the procedure I need to follow to remove front wheel to replace front tire on my 2001 ZX-9R Ninja motorcycle ?


you need to raise front wheel from ground with hoist or stand
remove brake calliper bolts and then twist callipers on disc to push pads back so that you can remove callipers.
loosen pinch bolts on one fork leg then undo axle nut ( large allan bolt) loosen other pinch bolts on other leg and remove axle and spacers/speedo drive and the wheel. take note where spacers go and also make sure to line up speedo drive tangs correctly when refitting wheel in reverse order to taking apart.
