I've been out on the Triumph for the last 2 maybe 3 weeks and the Intruders been sat in the garage. It was working perfectly when I parked it up. But when I went to get it out on Saturday I noticed the rear brake pedal is completely locked up. Cant move it up or down. The pedal seems to be locked in the 'up' position as the brake is not being applied. Any ideas folks?

Perhaps it's just the lever?
You do ride it hard and dirty so maybe the lever itself needs some love?

I agree with Marcin, clean the bike and add lube. You can't expect a bike to love you in return for not loving it

Since my last telling off I try and keep the bike fairly clean nowadays. I too thought the lever mechanism might be fouled so again I soaked it with acf50 and scrubbed it all out but still the same problem.

It's strange that it would sieze up in disengaged position.
Anything in between the lever and the drum that might have been bent perhaps?
Just trying to rule out everything outside of drum.

Hmm not sure mate, I'll have a closer look but its only been sitting in the garage. I think i'll see if I can disconnect the foot pedal from the rod/cable that connects to the drum, so I can see which part is not moving then

Joe it would be easier to disconnect the road it at the rear spring in the first place rather than at the pedal just to ses if it a brake or connection issue

Hi Joe I think CC is still smoking weed,disconnect at the rear of rod,and see if your pedal moves then,if not check the middle of your frame under the exhaust,there is a spring in the linkage there,make sure that is intact and not causing anything to jam,apart from a bent rod Joe there is not a lot it can be.(CC only joking over the weed,just laughing at your avatar,and spelling.)

Just push the lever forward against the spring on the drum, If it moves? it's the pedal that's seized, if not? It'll be the flat part of the brake shoes that have rusted to the pivot inside the drum, more likely to be the latter of the two.

Joe as Sim says only if you have time/space drop the wheel out anyway & have a look at the actuating lever etc.
Has the pedal been pulled back for some reason as if so it may have pushed the mechanism over centre & it may be jammed up.
Just a thought ok, Oh & use some copper grease on any pivots if you can dismantle them but be very careful at the drum pivot & do not use too much as it may get on the brake shoes!

Can't say I am surprised, even though this is something I would never of predicted. Done an oil change yet?
Just lube all the pivot point's well & go back a few day later to try sorting it out, it will be easier that way & good for the bike.

Bike was last serviced in January, and is clean and oiled. Makes me think its something in the drum, but theres no point guessing whilst I have the means to test it once I have some spare time. Thanks for all your advice chaps, will let you know
