Brake Caliper Seals
Just got in from enjoying the benefits of the longer days and lighter nights, i.e. Get a ride in after tea, to find a Black Oily film over one of my front brake discs.
During my ride I thought I could detect a vague burning smell and even pulled over to check, but couldn't see anything amiss. It was only on closer inspection that I found the above.
There seems to be a drip of the same fluid on the bottom of one of the calipers and the rim on that side feels a little grimy, but there doesn't appear to be any fluid loss from the reservoir.
So Question is: Is it the Brake Caliper Seals? and what can I do about it? (is it safe to ride to the Garage)
