07 YZ250 front brake

Recommended Posts

Buddy of mine (with that bike) was saying that when he hits deep mud holes (harescramble racing lately), afterwards his front brake feels basically gone until he pumps the lever a bit to rebuild pressure. I honestly am not sure why that would be. Is it possible that the whole system is weak and somehow the piston is getting pushed in from mud getting in there and he is essentially re-pushing the piston out before it firms back up? Or is it a product of mud in the rotor/caliper making it feel like there is no front brake til he burns the mud back off. He said the pads are actually loosening up but it seems like itd be hard to know that riding. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. He said the lever actually feels softer during this whole sequence.
