Rear brake question

Recommended Posts

On my 01 KTM 400 the outer pad of the rear brake stuck on and scorched itself.  I took the wheel off and I cant push the piston in at the caliper.  If I open the bleeder it goes in smoothly.  This seems kinda weird to me!  Any tips, ideas?

I burned up a front disk and pad set on my KLX because the master cylinder was not operating properly.

Is there play in the linkage to the master cylinder? 

No.  Its tight.  I haven't taken the time to mess with it.  I'll probably wait until next year!

If there is not the correct amount of free play, it`s like you`re riding the brake.

You need some play to alowe the piston to come back all the way.
