Front Brakes - Pressure Builds, Eventually Locks Up
Interesting phenomenon with my front (2010 FLTRX non ABS) brakes. Pressure at the lever will build up to the point the lever has no pull and the brakes eventually slowly lock up. I had to bleed pressure at the caliper to release the pads from the rotor and get some give in the lever. The problem repeated itself again (no pullback in the lever) after the bleeding, but the fluid level was low enough that the brakes didn't lock.
I don't think it's a heat issue as the lever was very stiff when I first started the bike.
