Front Brake Dragging

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had problems with the front brake pads dragging on the disc so that the front wheel doesn't spin freely? I finally tried putting a little lube on the caliper pin that secures the pads at the bottom end. That seemed to correct the problem so far. Anyone else had similar experience? :cry:

Are you sure the disc isn't bent?

The disc looks fine. Plus the problem seemed to clear up after lubing the pin.

Take the pin out and inspect it for a wear marks....sand or file any you may see off or replace the pin.Pin must be smooth for the pad to release.Same goes for rear.
