Front hand brake issue - October 15, 2008, 02:22 PM

I noticed two issues with my front break, one is that if i let go of it smooth enough it actually leaves the brake light on is there a way to make the pushing back action harder? Also when pulling the break it isn't a smooth pull its like somethings to tight or something, should i try to loosen the screw that holds the hand break on? and oil that?

2 questions.... 1 do you have the stock lever on the bike? in not and it is a motion pro lever it might be subject to recall for that very reason. and 2 when was the last time you bled the brakes and cleaned the calipers? old dirty fluid and dirty calipers can cause some stiction. i doubt this is your problem with the lever but it never hurts to clean everything.

MissS:no now!!!

bambam nope you said i have a few hours

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it
