r/f caliper sticking/ 83 1100

Post by devon99 » Wed May 27, 2015 8:14 pm



I have a r/f caliper sticking. I am thinking this is causing my low top end speed. I have rebuilt the calipers and lubed the slides, still having a problem. Do I miss something when I rebuilt it ?

I assume your rotor gets hot too.

Get it to stick and then crack open/closed the bleeder.
If brake fluid sprays out under pressure AND (without using that brake) it rolls easy again, clean out the spooge hole in the master cylinder.
When all else fails, RTFM!
