To the guy with sticking brakes back on 279...Could be caused by one or more of several things. Bad brake hose/line...this is often the case when you release pressure by opening the bleeder and the caliper then moves freely...a deteriorated hose/line will prohibit free flow of fluid back and forth...as the brake heats up the fluid expands and closes the caliper...not fun when on the highway at speed. Change your fluid every year if you have winter layover. Regardless of your climate it is always good and cheap to change the brake fluid. Condensation will build up in the fluid and rust caliper pistons causing the sticking problem mentioned. I have fixed calipers without new kits by honing the cylinder and piston with a dremel tool with a sandpaper barrel and careful to clean out the mess. The seals are usually okay if you're careful not to damage them (yes I am cheap). Good luck and enjoy that cool ride!
