I have a 2007 Honda 420. The front disc brakes stick when you squeeze the handle. The handle doesn't release unless you push it out.... I tried bleeding the brakes but this hasn't helped.... any ideas?
Thanks

Bleeding wouldn't help. Have you pulled the calipers and checked the wear on the pads? you could have one, or both, calipers sticking, so there isn't hydraulic pressure returning the handle back.

Are the brakes working well, other than the handle not returning? If there's air in the system, they won't work. If they are working, there is no air to bleed. As Jeep said, loosen the bolt that the handle pivots on, or spray it with some lubricant- see if that takes care of it.

I bet the return hole in the master cylinder is stopped up !.

remove the top cover from the master cylinder, remove the black round boot down in the bottom, ( yes..brake fluid is in the way..lol ) just drain the master cylinder. under the boot/plug, is two holes, your after the very tiny hole, they clog, and wont' let the pressure return from the calipers.

draining it won't help !, you got to clean the return hole, this is your problem.
