    Front brake hose rupture

    "We have bumped into the church"  :008: Another fault caused by friction when turning the handlebar.

    During this week I was noticing loss of pressure in the brakes, this afternoon when I left Barcelona heading home, when stopping at a traffic light, the front brakes did not brake, the lever has sunk completely and I had to brake with the rear . Luckily he was going at a speed between 50 and 60 km / h.

    So, I've driven 20 miles without a front brake.

    When I got home I looked at the problem and the first thing I saw was the empty oil tank and I saw where the Dot4 oil liquid had leaked.

    In the photos you can see the disaster.

    Thanks for that!  Guess I better check to see if I have the same wear going on.

    It's almost 200,000 kilometers driving the trophy constantly turning the handlebars. hence the friction with the sleeve pressing with the suspension bottles and the handlebar. Sure you can see it normal. But yes, another thing to keep in mind when making our review lists.

    Novocastrian, I'm not sure I understand you. Does your post mean your selling your Trophy.  :745: :745:

    He means that he can only go in a straight line from now on because turning the handlebars will cause the brakes to fail.

    I understood that Novocastrian means that the brake hose has many curves and that is why it says that it no longer drives through curves.
