  2. Beta Rev 4T 2008 Brakes Sticking On

    Hi all, i've just got a beta rev 4t 2008, and used it a few times, but when i use the brakes more than a few times in 30 mins, they tend to lock on, and we have to take the caliper off and push the pistons back in manually. they go in mostly easy, sometimes they just wont move, until we push in the right place, which i think is due to being slightly twisted. the pads are low but not gone, as they have about 2mm left on all round. anybody know of anything that it could be? I have wondered if i could just replace the piston and seals, but if the bore is badly scored then i will also need a new caliper, but i dont want to buy pistons if i need a new caliper anyway?

  12. hi thanks for all the feedback. its not as easy for me to try them out as i depend on others letting me try theres, which i dont want to do as its there property. so can you tell me the differences between 2t and 4t in how the machine is best ridden? is it low revs for 4t and high for 2t, or is it more complicated than that?
