My front brake loked up on me today while riding. I have an 02 YZ 426. I posted "front brake locking up" in the general dirtbike section. If anybody has any info can you please let me know.
You may also have excessive mositure built up in your brake fluid, which then causes corrosion to build up inside the caliper piston bore, which then jams the piston, and locks the caliper. The only way to correct this is a caliper teardown, and take some fine emry cloth and some oil and hone out the corrosion.
