Rear brakes

Postby 41simplex » Wed Jan 21, 2015 6:55 am



Picked up a 84 1200 rear brake caliper was locking up when trying to load on trailer ended up breaking loosening brake line at caliper what could cause it to lock up it gets tighter when I back it up. I was thinking of taking it apart an cleaning things up maybe there's a pin of shaft binding up not letting it float?

This is virtually always a blocked return port in the master cylinder - a very common problem. Have a read: search.php?keywords=blocked+port+master+cylinder&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=all&sr=posts&sk=t&sd=d&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search

Right here: HEL Stainless Steel Brake Lines

I've put these on both my Goldwings and my wife's PC800.
