Once and for all. what is the best solution to this problem.? I realize thier are a couple of cause's for it. Like mine, is this a common problem to just the 1983 year models?..

There a couple of causes, either the tiny little return hole in the master cylinder is blocked or there is corrosion in the grooves under the seals in the caliper. It is common on all old bikes from lack of maintenance or from sitting idle for years.

:waving:Raise the front wheel and check to see if it is also locking up and if it is the problem is in the rear master cylinder. '83 was the first year with the linked brakes and the R/H front & rear are linked. Depressing the brake pedal applies the rear brake and through a proportioning valve the R/H front brake is also applied. If the R/H front is not locking up then the problem is with the rear caliper.

Hey knowbuddy,

A friend of mine had a similar issue on his, dare I say it, his Harley and it turned out to be thin pads. They would bind up. New pads and the issue went away.

The point is, there is quite a bit to check, stay at it and eventually you will find the issue

Probably the rear brake is dragging a little. Once it gets hot, the rotor expands and brakes even more.

I would inspect the caliper to see if it's sticking. The wheel should spin on the center stand without catching.
