K1100LT front brakes

K1100LT.My front brake lever has been leaking some brake fluid recently and the front brakes
then locked one day plus the brake lever was hardly able to move. Now the front brakes
will not work nor the lever will hardly move ?!

There is a small fluid return hole that gets blocked and will not allow fluid back into the resevior and causes a kind of hydraulic lock, clean it out and try bleeding the system

Sounds like your master cylinder needs some attention. There is a good tutorial here
