  • Front Brake on ZZR250 'help'

    My front Brake on my zzr250 is not smooth anymore it is stiff its hard to explain but when the bike is '''Still''' u pull the front brake in and it gets stuck in like 3 places, it jerks thats the best way to explain it ,sounds bad but it's not major when it sticks. Has anyone had this problem b4????

    try spraying some WD40 or similar into the brake lever friction areas and master cylynder plunger, if this seems to smoothen the action out then maybe stripping all out cleaning and regreasing is in order. Failing that the problem may be at the caliper end, like the pistons sticking or the dust seals working there way out.

    I've got a workshop manual you can borrow if required.

            If your experience in brakes is not good as it sounds in this case, you might be better off going to a shop.
            If you start pulling master cylinders apart and you don't get it right you could be in for fright when you least expect it...
