Front Brake lever not returning

Post by Plodbike1962 »

Hi all

I have a 2008 R1200RT-P, when appling the front brake I have to push it back with my fingers to return it to the stop position. The feel of the brake can vary when applied. Has anyone experienced this ? ABS motor has been replaced and ABS system fully operational.
It's a life style !
