Front brake stiffness

Everytime I land hard from a jump my front brake gets super stiff and hard to pull in. It still brakes okay and gets the job done, but its kind of scary. Its becoming annoying as you never know how it is going to feel each time. By the way its a 2016 ktm 350sxf. And yes I have the lever adjusted as soft as possible to compensate. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks

Have you cleaned and lubed the pivot point of the lever? Is the fluid level correct? Is the pivot bolt too tight? After that you need to look at the internals.


The older I get, the faster I was.

Maybe a kink in the line? Try replacing and bleeding it.

A kink in the line sounds more like it. I will check when I get home. I think it may be kinking by the reservoir when full travel is being used. Anyone ever have this problem before? My bike is pretty new and I would think this wouldn't be a problem...
