Re: 08 1000rr brake failure
Did it unlock when it cooled down?
I have heard of brake drag problems on the '08 and locking up as the disc and pads get hot from drag would be a possible result.
My GSXR750 locked up solid at about 45mph. The bike simply came to a very sudden stop as the system expanded due to heat from severe drag. No danger other than lack of steering and potentially being run down by other vehicles. I had to crack a bleed nipple to unlock the wheel to push it off the road before riding it home with the front brake disconnected.
