Disk Brake problem in Bullet
After the much painful start up problems due to earthing of horn wire, my Bullet Electra is troubling me again.
Although it rides like a dream, but now my disk brakes have become really heavy.
So heavy that my front wheel is getting jammed due to excess hydraulic pressure.
Is there anything that i can do on my own to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

Bleeding, better done by a mechanic.

check disk break calipers & piston
@zoom_vroom: While you are getting the bleeding done, ask the mechanic to check the disk break calipers and the piston. Sometimes if the piston gets jammed, it wont release the brake properly leading to jammed front wheel.
Another thing to check is whether there is any bend in the disk itself.
