Re: linked brakes

Did you ever get your brakes sorted? There’s a recall on 1290 sdr and 1290 sdgt’s 15-18 front master cylinder piston can crack causing front brake reduced function.

Then I thought maybe something was worn in the mechanism. But first I wanted to be sure of the hydraulics,( bike only has a...
