2015 XRT linked brakes
« on: January 28, 2016, 09:10:02 PM »
Team... I've got a 800 XRT, 2500 miles on the clock. I'm noticing the rear brake is binding slightly.. so much so pulling it back is difficult and front disc has slight black rings...



should I be concerned? are the brakes linked?

It sounds like one of your brakes is sticky.
Most definitely get it looked at before you ruin your pads and rotor.

give the callipers and pads a good clean. If that doesn't help it's time t take a trip to the dealer.

And the brakes aren't linked either

To Check that you have or not have libnked, brakes, are there two brake lines going into one of the front calipers. Usually on the right side.
I run a tiger 800 (2020) and  I have two brake lines going into the right front caliper which means that I have linked brakes

That just means your right front caliper is linked to your left front caliper. That's different to linked brakes where the rear brake is linked to one or two pistons on the front brakes (some Honda and Moto Guzzi bikes, not sure what else). The Tiger hasn't got linked (rear-front) brakes.
