Hi folks

yesterday I experienced a weird thing. After some driving (fast but not hard) my brake pedal went to the floor and I couldn't even lock the ABS. But after about 10km and some hard braking efforts between 30-70mph all of a sudden the ABS seemed to reset itself and voila bite and braking power back to normal. So I immediately checked the pads, disc and fluid and everything seemed ok. What could it be? Glazed pads etc? I'm a bit worried now as I go on the Ring and at 250km/h I don't want the brake pedal to drop on the floor.

Any help appreciated

Cheers

Mike

Dont brake scoobymike, that slows you down! http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/tongue1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Seriously, sounds like glazed pads although I wouldnt know how you glazed them since you always let them heat up gently [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >. Have you got OEM discs and pads? If so, then that's normal! [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Hi Claudius

already talked to Eggenberger and Ralliart Germany. Ralliart recommended to check with the Mitsi diagnosis system which I gonna do tonight. They also think the pads overheated and recommend Pagid Blue to me. As I go to Hockenheim tomorrow I can visit their box and they take some of this with them for me!

I'll let you know what it was

See ya

Update

checked with the MUT II if all brake sensors work correct. No error code at all. But when bleeding the brakes we could find air in the system at the left front wheel. Now it should be ok, just eagerly waiting for the Mintex Dragon Pads http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >.

Sorry should have read this earlier. A soft peddle is a classic sign of air in the brake line somewhere. If you ever get a soft peddle bleed the brakes first its a very simple job with the right kit.
