Got into an accident
I took the wife on a quick ride. We smelled a burning smell, and we were having to give it way more gas to keep it going. We pulled into our driveway, and all of the sudden, the bike flew out from under us. The front right brake caliper sized up completely. I tried bleeding the brakes before, and right brake caliper bled normally; but the left brake caliper doesn’t let out any fluid. When I cracked the bleeder valve, a tiny bit came out of the left brake, but nothing more would bleed out. The right caliper shot fluid 10” and then trickled out normally, allowing the bike to move again. I am just glad we were going less than 5 mph. Previously, I undid the banjo bolt at the manifold and only a tiny bit of brake fluid dripped out of the right side. Can I pick up some universal brake lines at like autozone and swap them out? We got damn lucky we weren’t going 30 or 50. Now the wife is scared to ride on it.
