Now for my question. My bike hasn't been out since 05 and I just got her goin last weekend. The good thing is I think I finally found what was blowing my main fuse. (looks like the connection in the fuse block is loose) Well when I first got it out the front breaks were hanging up on it a little bit but they loosened up. So I didn't worry about it. I have been riding the last couple of days. Well now I'm at work at and the damn thing is hung up again. It's so tight that I have to give it a lot of gas to get it moving. I got some tools and am going to take it apart and see if I can get it loose again. Do you think I need to get a new caliper or does it just need to be worked a bit to loosen up? Thanks for your time Tony
You really should plan on replacing the piston seals in the caliper if you're going to ride the bike much. You can take the caliper off and push/squeaze the piston back in, but it's not much more effort to just "rebuild" the caliper once it's off. You should also consider replacing the rubber brake line, since they can deteriorate on the inside and cause problems. And since you're looking at that stuff, you may want a fresh set of pads...
