Help with brakes

Recommended Posts

I have a 1988 Big Bear 350 4x4. I had to take apart my front brake pistons and thoroughly clean them. The internal gaskets appear new from when I had bike shop I thought do a brake repair. Seems like they just replaced gaskets and didn't bother cleaning or clearing any of the trash from system. I put everything back together and try bleeding system and pumping up brakes. The front piston on both sides will just barely build up and it does hold and when I bleed them I get a solid stream of fluid so don't believe there is any blockage. Also to note the bleed valve is after the rear piston on each side so fluid is reaching it but for some reason not building pressure I'm guessing. How can I tell if I need to rebuild my master cylinder ?

 

 

Pic - the piston on left is before and right is after I cleaned one.

If there  is no  air in the  system  and no  fluid leaks, then  if you  cannot  build  pressure in the system there is a problem with the  master cylinder bypassing and it needs to be rebuilt.

    • 08 Grizzly 660 Brake Pads Suggestion

      I am looking for a new set of front and rear brake pads for my 08 grizzly 660.
      I usually go with EBC,they had good performance in my atv but went for a rest after 18,000 miles.
      I think $40 per a pair is expensive.So this time I want to have cheap brake pads replacement like Foreverun Motor.
      Have you heard this brand before ? Any good or bad reviews ?Thank you.
