My 95 Transalp has been laid up over winter.

The front wheel is really difficult to move. I've read about this issue just wondering if there was a guide on here in order to free off my callipers.

I'm not feart of doing the job myself I just wanted to ask more experienced folk about the best way to do it.(y)

common problem. my 650 brakes are always binding if i leave the bike just for a few days

tap the caliper with a rubber mallet, that will free off the pistons

Remove brakes and give them a service - clean pistons / if necessary replace seals and pay attention to any corrosion in the seal grooves (clean oxidisation out with a small pick). Reassemble with reg grease and fresh fluid. For removing pistons if they don't easily pump out this tool is useful in getting them out.

I did all that to my 650 brakes last year and they still bind if I leave the bike for a few days.
