I have a strange problem when I first ride my 2007 iron bullet after a few days of not being used. When I gently apply the rear brake for the first time the wheel locks up as if I was performing an emergency stop. After that the brake works fine. I have experienced this problem before and on investigation found a cracked brake shoe. There was no other obvious problem that I could find so I fitted replacement shoes from our host. Unfortunately after several more years of working perfectly the problem has returned and once again I have found a cracked brake shoe. I was very careful now to damage the replacement shoes when I fitted them. Has anyone had this happen to them?
