    Formula R1 problem

    I have a Formula R1 rear brake that when I squeezed the lever, it doesn't retract back to it's original position. I have to move the lever manually in order to go back to it's proper position. It was bleeded 3 months ago, but it's seems like it has alot of sticktion.

    Does it need to be bleeded again or it's a warranty issue.

    Your best bet is to call these guys directly. http://formulabrakeusa.com/about-us/

    It could be something as simple as the lever bolts too tight or something requiring a bit more knowledge..

    Had the same issue a few months ago.

    Was a build up of dust between the interface of the lever and the master cylinder.
    Took the lever off, did a wipe down and light lube.
    Brought the levers back to a smooth action.
