please suggest next steps in front brake issue.
OK I am getting frustrated. What happens is after a short ride, the front brake locks. I have changed the fluid and bled everything. I know the fluid flows freely from the ms to both calipers. I have taken the calipers apart and cleaned them. The one on the left will compress in with light clamp pressure. The one on the right will not compress in no matter how much clamp pressure I apply. I believe this causes the pad to rub, create heat, and push the piston out further, locking the brake tight. Why can't I get the fluid to push back out of the caliper on the right side but I can on the left? I took the entire right side apart and everything is clean. Oh, by the way, when I loosen the bolt for the line, it still will not compress. When I loosen the bleeder valve, it will compress.
