900 dollar bike strikes back!
well the GSX250 gave me back what i paid for it today, had the front brake piston sieze shut on me on the way to a bike shop.
didnt notice it at first, thought i just lost a bugger load of power, wondered why i couldnt get over 60km/h then realised... OH SHIT theres smoke pouring out of the caliper... not fun
130 dollar to get the shop to do it for piece of mind since ive never resealed the piston and given it a bit of a service. thats mostly labour cost though.
but bloody hell, how hot do discs have to get to turn BLUE... theres little to no warping, alot of glazing and a few scratches but its salvagable...
but damn... BLUE
well that was an experience today... anyone have anything similar happen lately?
No matter how old they get, guys don't understand when to take their bikes to the shop, even after 3 stripped oil plugs and a completely missing set of engine mounts.
