Tips for Brake Rub

Recommended Posts

07' - Rear brake has a little drag...any tips? The front has no drag, spins like a champ. The rear has only started to drag noticably in the last few rides. Any help is appreciated.

make sure the rotor is not bent. wheel on straight ? axle blocks notches the same? put bike on a stand and look at rear wheel from behind does it look straight, rotate it still straight sometimes i take a file a take a little off the outer and inside edge of the rotor also take the caliber and squeeze it in and pump the pedal make sure the piston not hung up

open your bleeder screw and see if the drag goes away. if it does your rear brake hose is getting bad. if not check your calliper slides to make sure they are not binding or sticking. cant imagine the piston sticking this early in the game unless you have been in some nasty stuff
