I recently found out my brakes stick in the engarged position when the bike is hot from the direct Arizona sun.
When squeezed the brakes stay squeezed.
I bring the bike back indoors (75F) and 30mins later the brakes work 100%
To my knowledge the system is new, and has new fluid (DOT4 syn)
Ive read here that it maybe some plastic part(s) inside the master cylinder (Lever assembly) that causes the it expand in the heat and therefore causing brake failure until the assembly cools down.
Ive read to lube up the MC...but isnt there fluid in there that will contact the grease/lube I apply? Isnt that going to contaminate the system?
Or is there aftermarket parts I can put in to solve this issue.
Brakes are Haynes Soles iirc. (Stock Giant AC brakes)
