new brake pads!

Postby achowler1 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 9:42 pm



hi, i have installed new brake pads on my 83 aspencade. the front caliper that is controlled by the hand brake drags a bit after the bike sits overnight. what's up with that? i have bled it a couple times, could the pins be sticking?

I just went thru this on my 83.The master cylinder has a bleeder hole that relieves hydraulic pressure.Mine was plugged.To see if this is the problem,when the wheel is dragging,center stand to lift the wheel,crack open the bleeder,see if the wheel stops dragging.If it does,remove the fluid chamber and clean the bleeder hole.Plenty of posts about it.
