Approx 600 miles ago changed all fluids , everything was great , on the way home from work last night noticed bike seems to be holding back , made it to area to pull over safely and rear brake and left front brake rotors and blue and locked up , after siting a while they did free up , was able to get home using only front brake , i'm thinking posible problem with the anti-dive valve , any ideas ?

Sounds like you overfilled the reservoir and now when the fluid gets hot and expends it activates the brakes.

Me? Thanks Hal, but I really don't know. It could be a number of things.

Has the recall been done? Even if it has, it might be the secondary master cylinder. It could be a number of things.

I guessing it has something to do with the linked braking system. Fred H. or Rob (techdude) might have some better suggestions on where to start troubleshooting.

Open a bleeder on that circuit and purge some fluid so that the reservoir level is at its mark. Recall checked or not, it could be the 2nd master or even left side front pad loose and binding and thus turning the secondary as you ride. The heat damaged parts will need to be replaced.

The problem most likely originated in your left front brake. The rear brake got applied because the left front brake was on, which translated force to the secondary master cylinder and activated the rear brake.

Remove the left front brake caliper and check the pivot bolt and bearing on the bottom and make sure the caliper is free to pivot on the fork and isn't hanging. Also inspect and grease the caliper slides and make sure that the caliper can slide properly so it can center itself on the rotor. And of course make sure the front and rear reservoirs aren't overfull. When you get all done, jack the front of the bike, and apply the front and rear brakes and release them, and make sure that the front wheel spins and that the front brake has fully released.

If your rotors have blued, you may have to replace them as well as the pads. It will depend on how hot they got, but the rotors may have warped, and the pads could also be cooked and glazed over. You might get away with resurfacing the rotors with an abrasive rotor disc without replacing them.

possible bad PCV

A bad proportional control valve will lock your rear wheel up for sure.

It is located behind the left radiator. Yes, the radiator must be removed to get at it.

The PCV costs over $300.

I had the exact identical issue w/ a used 2002 Goldwing which I purchased last August. I ended up rebuilding the left caliper with new seals, and that fixed the problem.
