    Hello, My front brakes seem to be rubbing and squeaking and I'm looking for a fix. In the video linked below, you can see the amount of resistance the front wheel has while spinning. I know the front wheel shouldn't just spin like its completely unhindered but I think it should spin a bit more...
  4. Sidecar Forum
    I recently purchased an 01 HD ElectraGlide Classic with sidecar. It is an FLHTC/I Shrine. My problem is it has a 1988 sidecar. The 88 sidecar has a drum brake. I can find nothing on finding replacement parts, i.e., brake line (previous owner removed it and ran the bike without sidecar braking...

    Hello, I have this bike a 1995 Honda VFR 750. I was noticing that when riding down the road, I'd take my hands off the bars and then the bars would start to wobble. I happened to notice at one point that the dot on the back tire indicating the lightest part of the tire was not lined up with...

    I have been having a rough time fixing the front brake on my bike. It all started when i would be riding a couple times the front brake locked up and the front wheel wouldn't budge. I could loosen the banjo bolt and fluid would spurt out, freeing the brake. I took apart the master cylinder and...
  9. Honda
    Has anyone had this problem? Took my bike in to get the rear break adjusted because the peddle felt like there was air in the line. Hit the break once and all was good but if you let it sit long enough you had to pump it once. Tech called the factory and they told them which part to replace...

    I just bought a bike and the guy said the back brakes just locked up on him one day. So I took apart the brake system and cleaned it a little then bleed the brakes. Took it out for a drive and they were working fine for a while till they locked up on me to the point where my back tire dragged...
  12. How To
    As requested by YamahaFan, Ive done the calipers myself, and documented it. This would be using a 1992 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6D with two front 4-piston calipers. First you will start off with a caliper looking something like this: This is a typical brake caliper, in this case its a 4 piston (two...

    Gents (...and ladies) ... Recently noticed my rear wheel is making noise just by rolling -- ie in neutral and pushing bike, I hear a grinding noise... THUS, I know it's time to change the back (and front for that matter) -- but I've only been able to find one site that shows how to take apart...

    I think I'd like for my front and rear brake to both work at same time with a single operation.. Instead of using my hand for front brake and my foot for rear brake, I'm thinking I'd like to just use my foot and have it operate both of them at the same time with equal pressure. Anyone know...

    I changed out my rear caliper on my 04XB12R due to some striped threads, and put new Ferodo pads in. I have noticed that the pads are wearing uneven. The pads against the piston seems to be thinner in running them for the last few weeks. I replaced my rotor also and have noticed that the same...

    I have a 91 FZR 1000... Does anyone know / has anyone tried a rotor that is compatable? I have read that some Ducati rotors are the same rotors. I think they are 320mm with a .5 offset. Or does anyone know about EBC part numbers? I know the part number is MD2003LS (left side? even though they...

    Hello everyone, When taking my SV650 03 out after 6 months of winter storage, I found to my surprise that the rear brake no longer works. The brake pedal pushes all the way to the bottom without any resistance and the brake doesn't take at all. It worked fine when I put the bike in storage...
