So I picked up an '86 VFR750 with 52k's on the clock - reasonable condition... drove 18 hrs there & back in the ute to get it (glad I didn't try to ride it back...) got the thing off the ute next day & rode it to servo to fill 'er up for a cruise. Didn't quite get to the servo though, only got about 1.5 km's when, while cruising at 50 with traffic, accelerating up and around a corner (not applying front brakes) I all of a sudden came face to tarmac with the realisation that whilst my new bike was sliding toward opposing traffic, i'd just been highsided... I was very confused? so after the obligatory "Oh, sh*t, my bike!!", Iv'e run/hobbled over to it and picked it up, couldn't get it out of gear of course, so the back would have to be slid off the road, but my growing confusion, about what the hell had just caused the seat under my arse to be replaced by abrasive bitumen, was intensified when the front wheel wouldn't roll. The front brakes were seized on, and the brake lever was as solid as a rock - couldn't pull it in at all, in fact the lever was flexing slightly, but couldnt move the plunger in the master cylinder... 1 disk was very hot... it was then i realised that there had been some drag on the bike, noticed while clutch pulled in and coasting, but i had thought nothing of it at the time, (hindsight is a marvelous tool for chastising one's self) After an hour, the lever was still solid; after 3 hours, it was back to normal; after three days I can now move around a bit - but im suspicious about the crunching in my knee cap... Anywho, what the? I've considered grit or corrosion in the calliper or warped disk/s causing the system to drag & overheat, but wouldn't that reduce the pressure in the hyraulic system? What could increase the pressure to the point the brakes apply themselves to wheel lock-up point? Pertinent facts: I dont think it had been ridden for a while; the brake fluid "appears to be" in good condition; bike rolls with minimal resistance now; there is no obvious brake pad rubbing noise; brakes work appartently normally now (but i'm no guinnea pig, me!); I didn't check the air pressure while it was on the ute, was heading to the servo for that - stupid man... front tyre pressure is low - guessing 20'ish psi; forks very soft - but that's compared to the Marzochi's on my other VFR, maybe these are meant to be soft? So what the hell went wrong???
