Brake Calipers Seize - Take II
Need advice: My front brakes seize after about 50 miles or so or riding, and using the front brake sparingly. So, after posting my first plea for help and doing what was suggested; I'm back with the same problem. Here is all that I have done so far:
1. Rebuilt both calipers, new pistons and seals.
2. Installed speed bleeders
3. New brake hoses (all 3 of them)
4. New rotors
5. New pads (OEM)
6. Rebuilt master cylinder with new pistion, spring, seals.
7. New DOT 4 brake fluid (several times over)
I have ordered new union bolts for all the hoses; short of buying new housings for the calipers and master cylinder, I've replaced everything else.
The brake is firm with little play, pads don't rub. Still pressure builds and the calipers grab the disc and I slow to a crawl. Let off the pressure and I'm riding again.
The Flag on my bike honors those who serve our Country and those who have served!
