    Hydraulic brake issue

    Thanks for the easy fix. Something else must be at woek here though. Both brake failures have been on the badger100. My db30 hasn't had any problems. This badger 100 must have a warped disc or somehow is overheating. I ride both bikes the same way...either WOT or nothing.... TT
