 Not sure I understand.....

 

 But if you have hydralic lock on the front brake calper, loosen the master cover to release excess oil, and it will go away.

Owner clean the pistons with a swap and iso alcohol. We found the pistons would not move forward in unison even after working and cleaning.

I was hesistant to bleed his brakes for him. Every time I bleed brakes for someone they freak out and think I ruined it because the lever is less stiff. Thanks for the info I really didn't know what to do next other than bleed. He balked when he saw that I made this thread as did many. Flame worthiness aside I learned something...
