Has anyone come up with an idea to fix this or do we have to get the brakes redone by our local shop to fix the problem?

I JUST PULLED MY BIKE DOWN FOR SERVICING, AND MY REAR BRAKES ARE DONE. I HARDLY USE THEM. MY OUTSIDE PAD IN GONE TELLING ME THE SLIDERS ARE SIEZED.
NOT APROBLEM WITH THE CALIPER.(OR THE INSIDE PAD WOULD BE GONE ONLY) I THINK THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE SLIDER "O" RING I'M GOING TO HUNT AROUND FOR A THINNER ONE TO ALLOW THE SLIDER TO MOVE MORE FREELY AND DO THE SAME TO THE AS WELL. MY FRONTS ARE WEARING EQUALLY BUT THE DRAG IS A LITTLE TOO MUCH I THINK !!!



GOOD LUCK I HOPE THIS HELPS... I'M GETTING READY TO PUNCH THE BLOCK FOR A 580 BIG BORE KIT... KEEP ALL FOURS ON THE GROUND, THE PREDATORIZER

My dealer corrected my brake drag problem by replacing the piston seals on the calipers. The seals had swollen and weren't allowing the pistons to retract when you released the brake lever.

RodG,

What were the symptoms of the brakes, were they locked, or just draging, and what the he!! did you say to the dealer to convince them to tear into them????

They were dragging so bad the wheels wouldn't rotate more than about 1/5 turn. That's what convinced them to work on it.

They basically replaced the entire brake system... lever, reservoir, lines, rebuilt the calipers.. but nothing helped. They finally determined that the seals were the problem. Ordered new seals and that cured it.

Rob do you know if the seals were an upgraded part or if they were the same ones that came on the brakes stock??

I wonder if your brakes will start dragging again as the seals start to swell if they (Polaris) haven't changed out the seal to a better one that wont swell.
