Hears one for you guys !!
I finally got the wifes 86 750 gremlins worked out of the carbs and ignition.
So we decide to ride today and go to her sisters @ 40 miles away. as we are driving on a rural road @ 40-45 mph , she is aprox. 75-100 feet in front of me and I see i huff of black smoke come from the bike, me thinking she down shifted and was going to run it threw the rrr's. I thought it was a fuel huff of smoke. But no sooner i think this she is pulling off the road, me now thinking its the carbs again, i pull up next to her and ask whats up, she goes the front breaks locked up, I said What ??
Well some how while driving the master cyl got pressurized and locked the breaks up on the bike. so i think for a while and get the handy adjustable wrench out and break the banjo bolt at the master cyl and the pressure releases.
Now the bike has no front breaks at all.
I never heard of a master cyl pressurizing its self with out touching it.
Any one ever hear of this ????
