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!

1999 Kawasaki ZX-9R Ninja brake light not working


Hi, Shawncolbyis before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.
