front wheel jammed, help!

Recommended Posts

i own an 04 aprilia mx 125, the bike has been running sweet, however, i took it out and when i had got back, i realised that when i try push the bike backwards, the front wheel just locks up totally as if it is jammed, but when i move the bike forwards, the wheel is smooth as silk. any ideas on what the problem could be?

My guess is that ur brakepads are unevenly worn. Remove the caliper and try rotate ur wheel backwards, if it rotates good then the issue is as i mentioned. So most likely u need new brakepads, inspect the pins that the caliper slides on aswell. If the pins have grooves or it doesnt move freely, then that´s also an issue. And last but not least, the brake caliper piston/pistons, spray them with rust off/ WD40 and clean them. If they fall out from the brake caliper u will have to bleed the sytem. Good luck :thumbsup:
