08 450F Front brake locking up

3 posts in this topic

I went for a ride yesterday and made it about 100 yards from camp and my front brake locked up. I went back to camp, checked the fluid levels and bleed the system. I rode about 4 laps and the front brake locked up again. I loosened the bleeder screw and depressed the front brake lever and it started working. I checked everything and cant find any problems. If anybody has some ideas I would really appreciate your input. I'm afraid to ride the bike because I know it will happen again. Thanks

also just make sure there's no debris in between the lever and the master cylinder. If it has been tipped over on that side lately it might have dirt lodged in it.
