Re: hard brake pedal

I Have only ever had one brake failure..vauxhall viva HA..now that ones winding the clock back a bit..I had changed the engine on this one bought it cheap to knock back out..took it for a test drive to see how it went..approaching a busy roundabout on a hill started to brake and Oops no brakes..managed to filter into the flow thank god because it could have got quite nasty drove the 3 miles home on the hand brake only..
metal brake line snapped off clean as a whistle from a front calliper brake hose..narrow escape or what..easy fix .breaker parts..old one off second hand one on..
Currently in Phil48's garage:

Re: hard brake pedal

Had a brake failure last Summer, A simple cure for constipation IMHO:-
Bike's Only done 68,000 miles but some 16 years old. On holiday in Ireland (Galway Bay). Got the K1100 out, only rode a mile, front brake sticking on. Turned around, brake came free, puddle behind front wheel. Found perished brake hose at T between forks. MOT tested 3 months previous.
Got a pipe made next morning at Pirtek 25.
sphincter still twitching when we rode the Kerry Ring (no pun intended).
Currently in Nottnoc's garage:
2008 Scenic Mk2 Dynamique 1.6 K4M 782. 1998 BMW K1100LTSE, 1994 MotoGuzzi Caifornia 3 LAPD, 1972 Norton Commando, 2010 Trafic SL29 M9R782 115, Lots of tools, Camping Gear & Booze
