    Brake locked up and need help

    When it happened a few a weeks ago, I didn't notice any debris but there were chunks missing from the pad.
  4. hey guys My rear brake locked up on me on a recent trip so I had to remove the rear brake pad which looked really bad to ride home. I have an 07 450 EXC I dont have any experience with the brake system Is anyone willing to to help me fix the problem?

    thats the million dollar question, maybe because he was able to adjust his mapping so he could feather the throttle? We both had extremely knobby tires D606s for me but I forget what his were ...haha yeah a snow tire thread would probably open up a can of worms yeah the help was necessary with it getting close to sunset the temps were dropping and I was sweating like crazy so it wasn't a good combo

    Thanks guys I am glad you enjoyed the write up, Im not much of a writer so Im trying to work on it through ride reports. Yeah I dont think you would fare to well on the GSA but it was slick as snot, although my friend had a 701 and cruised through the snow without any issue his bike had way better traction. Im glad to hear the story brought back some memories for you. Yeah its definitely hard to read the snow compared to reading dirt. haha thanks we were committed from the start not to turn around. It was funny because some offroaders turned around and said the conditions were too bad to make it all the way to Angelus Oaks..... here we are made it all the way through on 2 wheels lol ..Im happy to hear you enjoyed the write up

    No worries I enjoy sharing my adventures....Thanks Johnny it would have been easier if I didn't have all the gear in my saddle bag 😂 she was heavy lol... also I think I need to change the throttle tube out to provide a smoother throttle that I can feather in snowy conditions I will definitely not be forgetting this trip I cant wait for the next adventure 😎
