About 2 months ago I experienced loss of power just after 5 minutes into a morning ride. I soon realized it is not the engine but its the brakes as when I stopped and went into neutral, the engine was ok. Then about 2 weeks after, same thing happened and I am pretty sure its the brakes. Just a few days ago, same thing happened and the pull got stronger and I was forced to stop on the road shoulder. I could not pull the front brakes when the bike was stationary. Now that I know something is probably wrong with the brakes, I can merely tell the dealer my experience as I cannot recreate the situation.
While at the dealer, the guy mentioned that the rear brake caliper was hot and yes it was. The rotors were almost untouchable due to the heat. So we presumed its the brakes rubbing that caused the heat and the pulling effect. However, when I visited my usual mech, he put the bike on main stand and tried to spin the wheel and it was tight even when he knocked the calipers to free it a little.
Diagnostics at dealer shows speed sensor error ... and nothing relevant. So I will probably have to send it for a more detailed diagnostic.
Anyone experienced this?
