I took my bike into the detail shop to get her cleaned up after my Chicago trip last weekend, and had a bit of a problem when I got her back. The rear brake pedal will not spring back after I depress it. I called the shop to see if they did anything out of the ordinary, but was told that they didn't.

Could they have possibly "ungreased" the spring that is coiled around the crossmember?

What else could be causing this? I'm hoping noobdy has an idea that it may be the master cylinder....:(

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

Could be that they ungreased the shaft that the pedal revolves on when they powerwashed it. Try spraying some lube on the ends of the shaft and work the pedal with your hand. My 83's pedal was sticky when I first got it. It would come back up but not all the way. I used some degreaser first then shot some moly spray on the ends. That was last year and the pedal works fine to this day.

Regards,

Hobie

The pivot point can cause stickage like you are describing. It is not an easy spot to lube either, but if you have an oil can with the bendy spout, that would work great. If you can remove the cotter pin and pull the petal off and grease the pivot area directly, that would be optimal.



I had a stickage problem and some oil did the trick.

I just had the same problem. I took off the brake pedal and cleaned up the pivot real well. I then put some grease on it and now it works like new. I happened to be changing tires and doing some other work so I went ahead and dropped my exhaust which made it realllll easy to get to.
