2011 Ossa 280i rear brake pedal - return spring?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I went for a rather long ride and both my brakes seized up.

At this point, I'm focusing on the rear. I thought maybe it was the weight of the lever acting on master, making the rear brakes drag and heat up.

Should there be a return spring on the rear pedal, if so where does it go?

Thanks in advance!

From memory they just use the spring in the master cylinder.

Have you got free play at the levers, otherwise they will pump up and drag.

otherwise the pistons at the caliper or the piston in the master cylinder is at fault.
Fairly common for crap to get up into the master cylinder and start causing problems.
