Technical Questions and Answers


Brake, Lock and Roll

Stu,

Would you happen to know why the brakes on a GL1100 Aspencade can sometimes lock up and what the fix would be?

The most likely causes are a clogged master cylinder fluid return port or rusted caliper pistons. The fix is to completely overhaul the master cylinder and both calipers.
