    Rear Brake Lock up

    That might be a possibility. Between the noise of the TY and the other Trials bikes I never heard anything unusual.
  13. Rode in a Trial last weekend on my 74 TY250A. 3 Sections had creeks, so I was in the water 9 times (dumped it one of those times). My problem: After about the third wetting my brakes would lock up and not allow we to move the bike backwards - moved forward fine. I assumed the glue on one of the shoes had softened and the shoe had come loose. This has happened to me before and the shoe then comes over the other shoe and locks the wheel up. Not so this time. I have everything apart and there is nothing (that I can see) that would cause the wheel to lock up on either forward or backward movement. It does appear that there are grind marks on the side of the shoes (internal side)very slight. I have cleaned everything within an inch of it's life and am ready to reassemble but hate to do it without really fixing the problem. Any thoughts?
