Formula R1 brakes

Hey all

Have a bit of an issue with my R1 rear brake.


When I pull it, it brakes fine and the pad retracts so theres no rubbing, but the lever just stays near the handlebar and does not go back to its original position.

Now there are 2 bolts that keep the lever in the assembly, the lower was a bit loose and the top one VERY tight, when I eventually got it loose, I saw that the lever works fine, but I cant tighten the bolt too much or the lever again does not return properly.


Guess I could use some locktight, but that seems to be a solution to a problem that should not be there anyway.

Any idea what gives or how to fix it ?
