    I have yet to look into this problem. Just curious what others think. Seems a bit odd for it to be just brake pads.
    I have normal brake pedal pressure but only 10% braking power. It feels like they are frozen, and that's happened before for just a few pumps but goes back to normal. I drove 10miles to get home with little to no brakes. Its about 20* +/-. I've had brake pads down to the metal and they still worked. This seems a bit odd.

    Could a caliper have ice packed in it? Have you ridden in deep enough water to have gotten it in the master cylinder somehow (IE frozen line)?

    I was thinking that a few of the calipers have froze up. Its not pulling or anything when I hit the brakes. It's just won't stop. I don't think anything got into the master cylinder, but I did cross a creek that was over the hood and just below my seat. I've done 160miles in the last 2 nights and it's been cold and windy.

    Im hoping they are just froze. We really ran the machine in bad conditions for 2 nights. Snow, ice, mud, dust, water. I rode the brake pedal for a while hoping they would heat up but nothing. Ill heat the garage up and see if it helps.

    I’d say ice is the issue... get it thawed out and see if they work again.

    you need to melt all the crap when you go through a lot of water and its less than 20 or so. I will bring it in the garage after ride like that and blast with the torpedo heater for a few hours, then it will actually work next time. they are stored in the shed which is not heated but, normally fine if you don't let it build up like your pic

    the silicone based lubes work good for that stuff, cables and pivots. I will spray a rag and do my doors and crap to keep the ice off. white lithium they put on doors works good too but it is messy

    Mine did too. I thought it was my cable or something. I sprayed it with lithium grease and its been fine.

    Your not missing anything. Tires slice real easy, plastic breaks, metal wears out faster. Central PA has 4months of winter. We ride or we die..

    don't wash it either, take the hose in for the winter. but melting at least the ice helps a lot and the crud just kinda falls off when you go the next time(sometimes if its real bad I will just pick it with a screw driver or something after heating). I most of the time leave it in 4wd too I have when its super cold it freezes and locks the front, once you get it going it will get some heat anyway enough to melt enough to work

    gave up caring how it looks along time ago, rather be riding than washing. you have to keep the suspension, brakes and seals clean but that's all I mess with
