My first ER6N (rear) brake failure
To tell the truth I have never had this happen to me on a bike ever, but I have had it happen years ago on old Volvo I owned.
I was coming down a steep, long and twisting country road of the top off a mountain ridge down to the coast the other day. Though I was mostly in second and engine braking, this road is so twisty and there are always madcap teenagers screaming around these tight little bends on their scooters so I was trailbraking around most of the bends.
When I finally get down to the bottom of the valley I discover there is nothing happening with the brake pedal, it just keeps going down. At first I thought it was air in the lines or even a leak in the lines. But then I figured it must have overheated. Weird thing, I was flashing on the Volvo incident (same mountain, different road).
I kept riding slowly and didn't touch the brake pedal for at least 15 minutes. when I finally gave it a try it came up firm again.
Anybody else have this happen on their ER6/650?
