    Take the Captain's advice and start the wheel spinning in the center position, then turn to the right & see if it starts braking. It may be possible that your front brake cable is binding at full lock and lightly applying the brake.
    Well, brakes are actioned through hoses as they are hydraulic. I don't see any action on the hose being able to apply pressure to the calipers  :084:

    I realize this, Nik & like I said it MAY be possible. I'm not sure how all this works, but I would think if the brake cable was already tight because of risers added or not routed quite right it could be possible. I really don't know, just trying to help out a fellow rider diagnose his problem. You may very well be correct that it's not possible.

    Hey thanks mate for your "lateral" idea!
    You just got me thinking about the risers I had on my previous Mk1. Could be a clue!

    I had to reroute my clutch hose and remove the wire keeper around the ignition key area when I put my risers on.

    First thing I did after I fitted my risers was a basic but vital safety check for adequate free play in cables & hoses and that there were no collateral issues with steering or suspension.

    Can't believe  I didn't think of just spinning the wheel :003:

    Ordered bearings and caliper refurb kits as a precaution anyway so that'll be the weekend in a freezing cold garage.

    Cheers for all the input so far.

    Well, bizarrely the brakes do seem to try and grip the disk a little at full right lock but everything appears routed correctly. Cleaned everything today and now struggling to bleed the brakes having replaced a piston as it was showing signs of corrosion. Now it would appear I need to get dealer tool functioning to bleed the air. one trial after another.
